Jacques Rivette + World on a Wire + Class of 1999 - Eclectica #195

Algebra Lessons with Foxy Brown

It's the biggest week of the film calendar, so Aidan and Rob fulfill their obligations with a bit of an Oscars chatter before getting to the important matter of being bamboozled by the Film of the Week which, thanks to the Directors Lottery coming up with Jacques Rivette, means in their infinite wisdom they decided to fumble around with "Le Pont du Nord". 

After that it's on to more solid ground with Rainer Werner Fassbinder's 4 hour long TV movie "World on a Wire". Sarcasm! We're certainly cycling uphill this week, and since that's the case what better way to end the show than with the maximalist nonsense of studio-led exploitation in "Class of 1999" (it's an odd week, alright).

Oh look! Lady Gaga!
