Reel World: Rewind #036 – Southland Tales

On this episode of Reel World: Rewind…

Once again, Blake strikes with a challenging and heady movie. Richard Kelly’s widely criticized second feature film Southland Tales suffered similar marketing obstacles to his first feature film, the classic film Donnie Darko. Consequentially, his second film has largely been forgotten. Blake Collier and Josh Crabb untangle this serpentine narrative to discuss Kelly’s righteous anger, his sharp satirical takedown of LA and popular culture, and how the apocalypse is a bi-partisan initiative.
