Eclectica 174 - Yardie + Miss Leslie's Dolls + Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji
Drunken Sake Shenanigans
On this episode our Film of the Week is the hotly-tipped adaptation of a cult British novel about gangland youth, and although Graham is on hand to nurse Mick through his "Absolute Beginners" flashbacks, Idris Elba's directorial debut "Yardie" is a very different proposition. Bonus fact - star Aml Ameen was one of the kids on stage when Jarvis Cocker interrupted Michael Jackson's performance at the 1996 Brit Awards.
After that we have two very different films for Off the Shelf, with the first being from our new friends at Network, who have kindly supplied Graham with the long-lost grindhouse loonfest "Miss Leslie's Dolls". On the other hand Mick dons his reading glasses for Arrow's release of the samurai classic "Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji!" - which is apparently very charming for seventy four minutes then deeply disturbing for another twenty.
So it's a bit like this podcast then. Only longer.
