Dark Star / Cocaine Cowboys

Join Roger and Quentin as they revisit one of Roger’s favorite films, the 1974 cult classic Dark Star! Originally created by John Carpenter and Dan O’Bannon as a student film, buckle up for a ride amongst the stars as we follow a group of scientists on a mission to destroy unstable stellar bodies. Quentin and Roger discuss changing opinions from opening day, the impact the film had on future movies in the genre, and a beach ball alien. Next, we’ll return to 1979 with Ulli Lommel’s cult film Cocaine Cowboys. A rock band is on the brink of superstardom, and all that stands in the way is a lost bag of cocaine worth two million dollars. Starring Jack Palance, Tom Sullivan, Suzanna Love, and…Andy Warhol? Quentin and Roger reveal the truth behind the scenes, Andy Warhol’s influences, a Pierre Trudeau connection, and how this true story made it onto the big screen. Learn more about the show at videoarchivespodcast.com, and follow us on Twitter @VideoArchives.
