I watched the documentary Frank Serpico, and I'd recommend it. I've seen the movie Serpico before, but this has the real man talking about his life as a New York cop. I think Al Pacino was pretty good casting for him.

Anyone seen Only Murders in the Building ? It?s streaming on Disney + here in Australia. Starring Steve Martin and Martin Short, who make a podcast of a murder that took place in their apartment building in New York. It?s quite funny and I?m really enjoying it.
I watched the first two episodes last night (only it's on Hulu here, but I know Disney owns that). I like it. It's comedic but there's definitely something dark and mysterious about it, so I don't see it as being really light like AKA mentioned earlier.

SK, it's cool they don't split the series up on multiple streaming companies there. I don't think our Disney+ would air Only Murders in the Building because of the language. They don't do anything beyond PG-13 in the US, which I'm fine with, but it's nice you get all of those shows on the one instead of also having to have Hulu.

JUST PUBLISHED:

Clint Eastwood vs. The Rainbow: Racism, Misogyny, Homophobia and Other Cinematic Foolishness, by David Womack.  Flying Public Press 2021 softcover.  186 pages.

- Which Eastwood film has a dog named "Faggot" and a black woman referred to as "Aunt Jemima?"

-  Which film stops the plot in its tracks in order to make a rancid statement on black identity?

- Which film has the most gun commercials?

-  Which Eastwood performance made a Republican politician puke?

In disentangling Eastwood's directorial persona from the prestigious work of the directors (Sergio Leone, Don Siegel) who spawned him, Clint Eastwood vs. The Rainbow exposes a filmic sensibility increasingly relegated to the dustbin of cinematic history in the wake of gay marriage, Black Lives Matter, Me-Too and Gen Z.

Week 2:  November 23-29, 2021

White Hunter, Black Heart

Gant, I hope you don?t mind my going ahead and posting your idea. 

For me, I think Honkytonk Man would make a good pairing.  Both are interesting stories about interesting men.  Both are on a quest to accomplish something they desire and want very much.  Both took a while to grow on me but I enjoy revisiting these now.

So, all, what say you?  Agree, disagree?  Another film in mind that you?d watch as a double feature with Gant?s posting?  I?m curious to read your comments.  I hope you?re all doing well.

I don't know if I get how this is supposed to work. Someone mentions a movie and someone else says what movie would make a double feature with it, and then there's a week to discuss the pairing, or for people to mention other ideas of what to pair with the original movie?

Hi Christopher.  Sorry for any confusion.  The idea is that one person posts any Eastwood movie from his entire career, including the ones he appeared in during the 1950?s and I post what I think would be a good companion for a double feature.  That opens the door for discussion, including thoughts by others in what they would think would make a good double feature on the original post.  I figured a weekly time frame would be suitable but prior mentions can be revisited any time.
