Pod Casty For Me

Oct 27, 2023

Say cheese, listeners: this week we're taking a look at FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS, the first part of Clint's 2006 diptych about the Battle of Iwo Jima, and we're joined by writer, lecturer, and Pacific Arts Movement Managing Director Glenn Heath, Jr.! We talk WWII cinema, shout out our favorite little guys in the cast, publicity machines, look ahead to LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA, and say the word "simulacrum" even more than usual. Great ep, check it out!

Topics include: Steven Spielberg, beach-taking on film, Adam Beach's wonderful performance, whether Clint has seen BRING IT ON, his public spat with Spike Lee over this movie, whether this movie is about Vietnam or Iraq, Ryan Phillippe's powerful mind, artfully unconvincing CGI, and the upcoming San Diego Asian Film Festival.
