For all of Thomas Pynchon’s tracing of the souring and the downfall of the American fate, from prerevolution secret doom waiting to devour the 60s and 70s and how that leads to our current tainted now, forever, probably the one thing he didn’t predict coming to pass by this nightmare year of our dark lord 2020 was that, eventually, every single movie obsessive would have their own podcast, including one about his only film adaptation. That said, there is one film podcast out there that reigns supreme: the New Beverly-presented Pure Cinema Podcast, with hosts Brian Saur and Elric Kane, has become an absolutely ESSENTIAL ongoing conversation and cinephilic resource between the two men, their guests, and their friends, about not just the films of the New Bev, but films in general, various subgenres and performers and eras, and, in these odd pandemic times, is a real lifeline of listening. And today, they’ll explore with us the unique cinematic mayhem that is Dr.Rudy Blatnoyd, DDS. Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/one-heat-minute-productions/donations

The mystery of Shasta Fay Hepworth bookends Inherent Vice. Despite a few brief memories and cameos, she primarily anchors either end of the story, suffusing the long stretch of two hours and 30 minutes in between with the dusting of her starstuff, as if she is this universe’s Big Bang and Big Crunch—the story cannot begin, nor end, without her; but even further, the story is her, a strange supercosmos of Shasta Fay. Sprinkled throughout this long tale is the history of Doc and Shasta, the two once-young lovers who, in the words of their narrator, “each gradually located a different karmic thermal.” And at the exact moment of the film’s halfway point, Shasta reappears as a postcarded memory, in the film’s—and Paul Thomas Anderson’s—most heartrending moment, soaked in sweet melancholy like only PTA can orchestrate it, a memory that sends Doc hurtling towards the dark heart of Golden Fang, but how? Was the postcard a secret message from Shasta, coded in lovetalk, to help him locate the Fang? Was it simply a note of lovesick regret, and his flash to return to the scene simply a moment of coincidental luck? Is the appearance of the Fang’s headquarters here, where Doc and Shasta once kissed, some brutal metaphor for time sweeping away their love? Or was the postcard simply a hallucination sent forth from some blood-kinked, cell-deprived fold of Doc’s overtaxed cerebellum? What’s real, and what is simple hope? What is a true memory, and what is the fictional story we tell ourselves to survive it? That’s a question our host wrestles with today, while talking to someone who’s no stranger to tales of mystery and love and time and space… Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/one-heat-minute-productions/donations

“What did it matter where you lay once you were dead? In a dirty sump or in a marble tower on top of a high hill? You were dead, you were sleeping the big sleep, you were not bothered by things like that. Oil and water were the same as wind and air to you. You just slept the big sleep, not caring about the nastiness of how you died or where you fell. Me, I was part of the nastiness now.” That’s a line from Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep, and it’s one that Doc is surely on a handshake basis with, or would at least nod kinda knowingly to before returning to his cloud of Asian indica. “When you’re dead, you’re dead,” as Bigfoot Bjornsen says…but what if…what if even that was one of the certainties that the Golden Fang could take from us? Who could you turn to? Who else could Doc take this to, besides our old flat-topped pal? As Chandler wrote in The Long Goodbye, “I never saw any of them again — except the cops. No way has yet been invented to say goodbye to them.” Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/one-heat-minute-productions/donations

"Inherent vice" in a maritime insurance policy is anything that you can't avoid...eggs break...chocolate melts...glass shatters...and our host-hermetically sealed inside a dark screening room and kinda-sorta ruminating on the End Times when he'd much rather be watching movies-wonders what that means when applied to global contagions... And so it is with today's guest that he teams up to study a particularly difficult and ominous scene in Inherent Vice ("a film that wafts through itself," according to said guest) during what is shaping up to be a particularly difficult and ominous time, one in which the term "inherent vice" has taken on a far, far darker meaning than before.

About Sean Burns Sean Burns is a Staff Writer at WBUR's The ARTery and a Contributing Writer at North Shore Movies. He was Philadelphia Weekly's Lead Film Critic from 1999 through 2013 and worked as the Movies Section Contributing Editor at The Improper Bostonian from 2006 until 2014.

His writing has been called "jocular but serious, more like a 1940′s daily reporter pounding out columns on a manual typewriter than a typical 21st-century navel-gazing film critic." Meanwhile, his sisters still tell him that he "swears too much and drives like an old lady." Twitter: @SeanMBurns

In his classic novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Ken Kesey wrote "McMurphy laughs. Rocking farther and farther backward against the cabin top, spreading his laugh across the water...laughing at all of it. Because he knows you have to laugh at the things that hurt you just to keep yourself in balance, just to keep the world from running you plumb crazy. He knows there's a painful side...but he won't let the pain blot out the humor no more'n he'll let the humor blot out the pain." If ever there was an author we suspect our ol pal Doc Sportello would enjoy (other than a certain reclusive fellow hiding on the other side of Gravity's Rainbow), it'd be that acid-fried humanist Kesey, who also wrote something more than just a little pertinent to Inherent Vice in general and today's scene in specific: "You had a choice: you could either strain and look at things that appeared in front of you in the fog, painful as it might be, or you could relax and lose yourself." Goddamn, Ken... About the Guest - PETER AVELLINO "I'm a writer. I live in Los Feliz. Sometimes I go to the movies. There's more to tell, but not just now."

Ol' Raymond Chandler once wrote the following about the kind of hero who shows up in detective fiction: "Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. The detective in this kind of story must be such a man. He is the hero, he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor, by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world." "The best man in his world and a good enough man for any world," huh? Gee, that sounds a little like a buddy of ours out in Gordita Beach, has an office now, it's like a day job and everything. Not quite a do-gooder, but somebody who does good...

The novels of Inherent Vice author Thomas Pynchon are littered and laced and threaded and latticed with all manner of references to songs and bands and movies and TV shows and cartoons either real or imagined, a paranoid prism of pop culture through which you see his characters, their lives, and the conspiratorial entanglements that enmesh them. So it's all rather appropriate that today's guest comes armed with movie marathons and mixtapes and double and triple features all centered around Inherent Vice-through her incredible array of popsterpieces, we can see through the fog of the Fang and recognize a few folks we know, like a certain heartbusted detective, his maybe-real/maybe-not surfergal Jimminy Crickett, a mysterious ex-old of some repute, and a fast-talking Chick Planet countergirl who maybe just maybe knows more than anyone else in this misty night-world we find ourselves returning to....

For minute seven host, Blake Howard joins writer, T.V producer, journalist and author Lee Zachariah. Lee and Blake discuss that All The President's Men is the ultimate "just the facts Maam" of films, information as "thriller" and the necessary shock of these cops dressed as hippies taking down the guys in suits. Directed by Alan J. Pakula, written by two-time Oscar-winning screenwriter William Goldman from the novel by reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, starring Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman; All The President's Men is a perfect film about an imperfect time.

"Was it possible that at every gathering, concert, peace rally, love-in, be-in and freak-in, here, up North, back East, wherever, some dark crews had been busy all along, reclaiming the music, the resistance to power, the sexual desire, from epic to everyday, all they could sweep up, for the ancient forces of greed and fear?" That's a question Doc's mind-with-the-munchies chews on in Inherent Vice, both the book and the film. "Gee," ultimately thinks. "I don't know." Well, today's guest certainly thinks so, as he walks us through the lattice of beastly beneficiaries to the betrayal of a generation, a movement, a decade, a country-COINTELPRO informants, conspiranoid CIA ops, mismanaged and malevolent FBI agents, rogue LAPD officers, and that strange sick fuck Charlie Manson himself-and just how easily they can swing you to their side, with a simple conversation in a room a lot like the one Doc finds himself in today...

Connections abound in the paranoiac and conspiracy-laden world of Thomas Pynchon, connections vast and connections minute, connections real and perceived and imagined and hoped for and dreaded and undiscovered. The same could be said of the city, the megalopolis, Los Angeles, with its never ending cascade of connections falling upon its concrete sprawl and tangling up its dazed denizens like fish in the net of a certain schooner sailing the seven seas. Connections that bind this person to that movie, or that movie to that song, or that song to that memory, or that missing person to that booby hatch, or that ex-old to that supposedly dead junkie sax player, and so on and so on and so on, world without end, hallelujah. And if connections are part of the marrow-deep makeup of Pynchon's work (and maybe even a little movie based on one of those books), then boy oh boy, today's guest was pretty much born to talk about them, as he and our host surf upon a series of seemingly endless wave of connections from SoCal noirs to comic book panel art to the hidden extraterrestrial messages buried within PTA's Punch-Drunk Love. No, really.

ONE HEAT MINUTE is the podcast examining Michael Mann's 1995 L.A crime opus HEAT minute by minute. In this very special bonus episode, the only man (besides Michael Mann) to connect HEAT and L.A Takedown joins host Blake Howard to talk about his small and unforgettable role as Ralph, Xander Berkely. Blake and Xander discuss being in the orbit of Michael Mann and casting director Bonnie Timmerman since a guest-starring role on Miami Vice, illuminating Blake on the evolution of pilot "Hannah" into "L.A Takedown," modelling his Waingro's physicality on the infamous Hillside Strangler and even throws in a Pacino "SIDDOWN." GUEST BIO Xander Berkeley Xander's father was a painter and his mother a school teacher who sewed, providing him with costumes (his preference over toys). School plays and Community Theater were next. An experimental theater troupe in the area (which was an offshoot from Joseph Chaikin's Open Theater in New York) took Xander under their wing when he was 16. He credits this group for shaping him as both a person and an actor, committed to taking risks and remaining open to the unknown. Xander went to Hampshire College, the progressive brainchild of Smith, Mt. Holyoke, Amherst, and the University of Massachusetts. He would continue in the theater at Hampshire, studying and doing plays at each of the other schools, all of which were there in the area. A move to New York after college brought him access to private teachers from the Royal Academy of the Arts, the Moscow Arts Theater and HB Studios. Later in Los Angeles, Xander would spend time with Lee Strasberg at The Actor's Studio during the last years of his life. Xander worked in Regional and Repertory Theaters in addition to off-Broadway while living in New York but, despite a classically trained theater background, he was increasingly drawn to the subtleties of film acting. A play, written by the great southern novelist Reynolds Price, called "Early Dark" had such a cinematic feel to it, that an agent saw the film acting potential in Xander and encouraged him to make the move out west. Soon Mommie Dearest (1981) provided Xander with his film debut in the role of "Christopher Crawford", and simultaneously gave his career a slightly cultish twist. Alex Cox with Sid and Nancy (1986), James Cameron with Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), Bernard Rose with Candyman (1992), Todd Haynes with Safe (1995), Mike Figgis with Leaving Las Vegas (1995), Andrew Niccol with Gattaca (1997) all helped to further associate Xander as an actor in his own rather unusual category. Xander's choices were often determined by the opportunity to learn from directors he admired, certainly all those listed above fell into that category. Clint Eastwood with The Rookie (1990), Ron Howard with Apollo 13 (1995), Rob Reiner with A Few Good Men (1992), Michael Mann with Heat (1995), Wolfgang Petersen with Air Force One (1997), Steven Spielberg with Amistad (1997) are obvious examples of others Xander actively sought to work with and learn from. From obscure independent movies where Xander could play lead roles to the big budget studio movies where he might often play smaller character-driven parts, an education was taking place. Just as working with older directors like Michael Cacoyannis on The Cherry Orchard (1999) and Robert M. Young on Human Error (2004) (aka "Human Error") brought insights to ways of working that are being lost in pop cultures tendency to slide toward slickness. Not to mention bringing him to places like Bulgaria and China along the way. Perhaps because a life in the foreign services, or espionage was seen as a road not taken, living on location in foreign countries, working as an actor, has somewhat fulfilled the impulse. As early as 1987, a film took Xander to Nicaragua while the Contra War was taking place. It was during this three month shoot on the film Walker (1987)...
