Description

ONE HEAT MINUTE PRODUCTIONS began with film journalist Blake Howard examining Michael Mann's 1995 crime opus HEATchronologically, in 60-second increments, in the aptly titled "One HEAT Minute." After more than 170 episodes the finale featured the legendary mastermind director, screenwriter and producer behind the film Michael Mann. Now, the feed is occupied by similarly obsessed examinations like: THE LAST (12 minutes) OF THE MOHICANS is a twelve-episode limited podcast series focusing on the climax of the Michael Mann's 1992 epic The Last of the Mohicans. (Completed) INCREMENT VICE is the podcast that explores Paul Thomas Anderson's INHERENT VICE one scene at a time, with host Travis Woods (Weekly on Fridays) ALL THE PRESIDENT's MINUTES is a podcast where conversations about movies, journalism, politics and history meet. Each show we use the seminal and increasingly prescient 1976 film All The President's Men as a portal, to engage with the themes and the warnings of the film resonating since its release. (Three times a week) #ConTENgen: In a world changed by COVID-19, every day, this podcast will be reaching out to talk movies and maintain connections; in less ten minutes or less. (Daily).

01:22:28
Well, mornin, Sam. It’s finally here, it’s final time—we’re gonna sit down with that hippie-hating mad dog himself, Christian F. “Bigfoot” Bjornsen and have ourselves motto panukeiku. And sure it’s something to laugh at, Bigfoot chowing down on pancakes with the same ravenous intensity that he deep throats a chocolate covered frozen banana or a platter full of Doc’s best Asian Indica, but at the same time, this is mourning all right, and it is deep. Bigfoot’s air of possessed melancholy—where does it come from? What’s been lost? If the term “inherent vice” refers to all that is lost irrevocably due to time, what’s the shape of the hole in Bigfoot’s heart…? …or maybe it’s his stomach? *About the Guest - MATT ZOLLER SEITZ* Matt Zoller Seitz is the Editor at Large of RogerEbert.com. He is also the TV critic for New York Magazine and Vulture.com, and a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in criticism. His writing on film and television has appeared in The New York Times, Salon.com, The New Republic and Sight and Sound.

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #28: “...any gathering of three or more civilians is now considered a possible cult...” with Anna Swanson
02:03:02

Much like our ol pal Doc, on principle we try to spend as little time around the LAPD as is possible. And yet here we are, unswerving and unavoidable, careening with a scene into the lightless dark that pulses siren-red and siren-blue. All this strange alternate cop history and cop politics—cop dynasties, cop heroes and evildoers, saintly cops and psycho cops, cops too stupid to live and cops too smart for their own good—insulated by secret loyalties and codes of silence from the world they’d all been given to control.

01:28:26

Bob Dylan once sang, “it’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there,” and gee whiz if that ain’t ever the tone of the times these days—that sense of encroaching darkness and regret and a growing nostalgia for all that’s been lost…And guiding us through that not-quite-dark-but-sure-as-shit-not-light-at-all tunnel is a guest whose words are like a lantern in the fog, here to see us to shore and safety…

All The President's Minutes - Minute 45 with Jacob Knight
54:19

All the President's Minutes is a podcast where conversations about movies, journalism, politics and history meet. Each show we use the seminal and increasingly prescient 1976 film All The President's Men as a portal, to engage with the themes and the warnings of the film resonating since its release. For minute 45, I join writer for Rebeller, Fangoria, Dark Moon Digest and connoisseur of movie trash-art, Jacob Knight. Jacob and I discuss to the allure of the idiosyncratic, the dopamine rush of chasing the truth in President's and David Fincher's Zodiac and Jacob advocates for the upcoming documentary Alan Pakula: Going for Truth. 


About Jacob Knight

Rising from the sewers of Philadelphia, Jacob Knight is a man out of time currently residing in Austin, TX. When not lamenting the Disneyfication of our current culture, he's usually enjoying a whiskey, watching some form of disreputable trash cinema, or drunkenly perusing one of the few remaining video stores. No matter what, do not @ him.

All The President's Minutes - Minute 43 with Niles Schwartz
01:08:57

All The President's Minutes is a podcast where conversations about movies, journalism, politics and history meet. Each show we use the seminal and increasingly prescient 1976 film All The President's Men as a portal, to engage with the themes and the warnings of the film resonating since its release. For minute 43, I join writer, author and incredible film mind Niles Schwartz. Niles and I digress into discussions about "Capone," being a disease investigator, President's being all a second act, the austerity of the storytelling and what happens next being for the history books. 



About Niles Schwartz

Co-founder and writer, Minneapolis / St. Paul Cinephile Society (http://mspcinephiles.org ). Contributor to The Point (http://thepointmag.com ) & Slant Magazine.

Buy Niles' excellent novel here.

Synopsis: A motion picture chronicling the last adventures of bank robber John Dillinger (Johnny Depp), Public Enemies was met with much bafflement upon its 2009 release. Director Michael Mann's terse storytelling and unorthodox use of high-definition digital cameras challenged viewers' familiarity with Hollywood's historical gangland elegance while highlighting Public Enemies' own place in a medium—and culture—undergoing sweeping technological change. In Off the Map, Niles Schwartz immerses us in Mann's representation of Dillinger, a subject increasingly aware of his own role as a romanticized frontier folk hero, in flight from an enveloping bureaucratic system. The cultural issues of Dillinger's 1930s anticipate the 21st century watershed moment for the moving image, as our relationship with the pictures surrounding us increasingly affects our own sense of identity, historical truth, and means of relating to each other. Mann's follow-up, the hacker thriller Blackhat (2015), reflects a world where Public Enemies' abstract surveillance state has since colonized the firmament of our everyday lives. Yet in this virtual labyrinth of surplus images, cinema may inwardly illuminate a transformative path for us. Off the Map places Mann's late works in deep focus, exploring our present relationship to cinema on a backdrop that swings from the blockbuster spectacle of Avatar to the curious intimacy of Moonrise Kingdom, ultimately suggesting the mysterious space between the viewer and the screen may yet become a sanctuary of deep spiritual reflection.

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #26: “...most of us happen to be dentists...” with Elric Kane and Brian Saur
02:08:59

For all of Thomas Pynchon’s tracing of the souring and the downfall of the American fate, from pre-revolution 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.

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #25: “...that one day in the rain...” with Rian Johnson
01:16:42

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…


About the Guest - RIAN JOHNSON

Rian Johnson is the writer-director behind BRICK, THE BROTHERS BLOOM, LOOPER, STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI (the best STAR WARS, if you're keeping track of that kind of thing), and KNIVES OUT.

“Your memory creates postcard images, but it doesn't really comprehend the world at all. That's why a landscape is so affected by the mood of the person looking at it. In it a person sees his own inner, transitory moments. Wherever he looks, he sees nothing but himself.”

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #22 “...sometimes, it’s just about doing the right thing...” with Brendan Hodges
01:49:33

“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.”

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #21 “...they’re an Indochinese heroin cartel...” with Blake Howard
01:32:52

If the first hour of Inherent Vice is a hazily mysterious stretch of world-building in which we—and Doc—realize that something has gone wrong, then the second hour of the film is reveal after reveal of what is wrong with the world, and the people in it. And resting between those two hours is this one-scene, in which the film simultaneously exhales after an hour of introductions and inhales before diving deep into the world of the Golden Fang, and exponentially expanding the scope of Inherent Vice.


And who better to join us to celebrate cracking Inherent Vice’s first hour with a one-minute scene than the host of One Heat Minute himself?


Inherent Vice is a film that deceptively uses its hardboiled detective fiction framework as a method of inquiry into something far deeper, and far more serious, than a plot to kidnap a real estate developer. It tricks us into settling in for a noir about a man solving a mystery, and instead presents us with a man confronting a melancholy truth: everything—lives, eras, and loves—comes to an end.

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #19: "...what you would call 'an atmosphere'..." with FILM CRIT HULK
01:26:48
”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 the Guest: FILM CRIT HULK
Film Crit Hulk is the pseudonymous pen name of an essayist who has written for Polygon, Observer, Vulture Verge, Entertainment Weekly, the New Yorker, Playboy, and Thrilllist. He tends to write long-form articles about semiotics, dramatic function, and inter-sectional cinema..

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #17: "...out at sea someplace..." with Peter Avellino
01:39:22
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…

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: The book and the movie version of the same story walk into a bar and order a couple Tequila Zombies.

The book says, “she’s not just a boat, Doc.”

…Get it? Boat? Dock? Like…where a boat docks?

Hello? Anything?

Well, if thematically appropriate Dad Jokes aren’t your thing, stick to the episode: Steely Dan, Donald Drumpf, nautical puns, movie references, PTA vs. Pynchon, food jokes…if ever there was an episode of INCREMENT VICE that matched the sheer metric tonnage of its scene’s atomic density, it’s this one.

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #15: "...I don't know what I just saw..." with Jason Bailey
01:18:38
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…

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #14: "...this is Golden Fang territory..." with Millie De Chirico
01:50:45
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….

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #13: "...he's real intelligent about this kinda shit..." with Jacob Knight
01:35:51
“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…

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #12: "...Shasta's missing, Wolfmann's gone, uh, Glen Charlock's dead..." with Jim Hemphill
02:22:36
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.

BONUS One HEAT Minute: "One Ralph Minute" with Xander Berkeley
01:02:19
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) (starring Ed Harris) that Xander got an offer to do a film with his friend, director Jon Hess, in Chile for the following three months. Taking him straight from the revolutionary left-wing Sandanistas to Pinochet's fascist, right-wing regime.

In 2001, an offer came in to play a part on a TV pilot called 24 (2001). It was another shady agent-type, and reluctant to repeat his performance from Air Force One (1997) as the turncoat secret serviceman, Xander almost passed on the job. Fortunately for him, he said yes. He met his future wife, Sarah Clarke during the first day of filming. His character, "George Mason", was just a guest star in the pilot, but the producers liked what Xander brought to it and continued to write more episodes for him. By the second season, it had become perhaps the most interesting, leveled character Xander had ever gotten to play. Sarah and Xander were married in 2002 and had their daughters, Olwyn in 2006 and Rowan in 2010.

Other favorite roles of late have been "Arlen Pavich", the middle management dweeb, in Niki Caro's North Country (2005), and the Irish hooligan/railway foreman in David Von Ancken's Seraphim Falls (2006) and, more recently, "The King of Sodom" in Harold Ramis' Year One (2009), "Sonny" in David Pomes' Cook County (2008), the recovering meth head coming out of prison to discover the life he had left (and destroyed), and crazy "Uncle Doug" in David Wike's Out There (2006) (aka "Out There").

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #11: "...not so much English rose as English daffodil..." with Courtney Howard
01:44:49

“It was a reverse floor plan, with bedrooms on the entrance level and then upstairs the kitchen, maybe more than one, and various entertainment areas. The house should have been full of law enforcement. Instead, the boys from Protect and Serve had set up a command post at the pool cabana, somewhere out in back. Like getting in some last-minute free catering before their federal overlords showed up. Sounds of distant splashing, rock n roll radio, eating between means. Some kidnapping.

”…In the time it took [Sloane] to lead him through a dim sunken interior full of taupe carpeting, suede upholstery, and teak, which seemed to extend indefinitely in the direction of Pasadena, Doc learned that she had a degree from the London School of economics, had recently begun studying tantric yoga, and had met Mickey Wolfmann originally in Las Vegas.”

There’s a reason why our buddy Thomas Pynchon describes the House of Wolfmann as a descent into Hell—for Doc, it kinda is. Having just met a salt-of-the-earth gal like Hope Harlingen (heroin and heaving and hardons aside), who with a quiet and modest dignity refuses to accept the death of her husband despite no support from the cops or the banks, it must be a shock to the system for our knockabout dick to find a woman outright celebrating the non-death of her missing husband with the cops and the banks and everyone else on the wrong side of karma in 1970.
And that’s this scene in a nut, isn’t it? It’s a dichotomous portrait of lives on either side of the Golden Fang—the good lives the fangs chew to pieces…and the gaudy lives those fangs feed…

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #10: "...along comes little Amethyst..." with Lindsey Romain
01:22:51
“Some ex-old lady had hit town, and they’d run away together. The emergency room had mixed them up with somebody else, the way maternity wards switched babies around, and they were still on some intensive care ward under another name. It was a particular kind of disconnected denial, and Doc figured he’d seen enough by now to recognize it.”

In the novel Inherent Vice, that’s how Thomas Pynchon described the post-1960s generation coming of age in the year 1970, bleary-eyed and hungover from the last decade and the damage done, and afflicted with the cruelest kind of misery—absolutely devastated by the grief of loss, yet operating in complete denial of the existence that grief, telling themselves stories, as Joan Didion would say, in order to live, stories that explain away the deaths of loved ones as strange and grand mysteries, rather than cruel and banal fates.

Further, in Paul Thomas Anderson’s film adaptation, Sortilege intones that the post-Manson era in which Doc and company found themselves in was perilous, “astrologically speaking, for dopers...especially those of high school age. Who'd been born, most of them, under a 90-degree aspect...the unluckiest angle possible...between Neptune, the doper's planet...and Uranus, the planet of rude surprises. Doc had known it to happen...that those left behind would refuse to believe that people they loved...or even took the same classes with, were really dead. They came up with all kinds of alternate stories so it wouldn't have to be true.”
The Harlingens are a family in need of such a story, one that will allow them to live in the Mansonoid post-60s drop-out drag of the Age of Nixon. If only someone could tell them that story, could put together the pieces so we could all see it a little more clearly…

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #9: "...she's gone, man..." with Alicia Malone (Author, TCM Host)
01:31:16
Near the end of Douglas Sirk’s 1954 Technicolor melodrama, Magnificent Obsession, Otto Kruger makes a pretty heavy declaration:

“Once you find the way, you'll be bound. It will obsess you. But believe me, it will be a magnificent obsession.”
We agree that’s a sentiment that our pal Doc Sportello would be in a nodding, bleary-eyed acquaintance with, drawn inevitably as he is to the flame of beloved ex-old Shasta Fay Hepworth; it’s also something Bigfoot Bjornsen, Hope Harlingen, and the rest of Pynchon’s alliteratively named rogue’s gallery of drop-outs and dopers and heroes and hopefuls understand: “once you find the way, you’ll be bound.”

They’re bound all right, though magnificent isn’t a word they’d probably use, what with their hopes and dreams all being squashed beneath the boot of time and time’s mercenary, The Golden Fang. But obsessions can be magnificent. Whether focused on a person or a time or maybe just a screen flicker at 24 frames per second, to passionately dedicate yourself to something you love can unlock doors you never even knew where there, sending you tumbling into worlds you never knew existed.
That’s something our host would know a thing or three about; our guest Alicia Malone does, too. From sitting in the cave-dark of a theater for the first time to jockeying a video store to fanatically freaking about favorite films, Travis and Alicia understand obsession. How it can be magnificent. How it can be inherent.

“Once you find the way, you’ll be bound.” Boy, don’t we know it, Otto.

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #8: "...that's Bigfoot Bjornsen, Renaissance cop..." with Marya Gates
01:17:19
“…banana omelets, banana sandwiches, banana casseroles, mashed bananas molded in the shape of a British lion rampant, blended with eggs into batter for French toast, squeezed out a pastry nozzle across the quivering creamy reaches of a banana blancmange... tall cruets of pale banana syrup to pour oozing over banana waffles, a giant glazed crock where diced bananas have been fermenting since the summer with wild honey and muscat raisins, up out of which, this winter morning, one now dips foam mugsfull of banana mead... banana croissants and banana kreplach, and banana oatmeal and banana jam and banana bread, and bananas flamed in ancient brandy Pirate brought back last year from a cellar in the Pyrenees also containing a clandestine radio transmitter...”
—Thomas Pynchon, Gravity’s Rainbow

It’s clear Pynchon has bananas on his brain, but perhaps not nearly as much as the bruised and spoiled synapses of Lt. Detective Christian F. “Bigfoot” Bjornsen, whose appetite for the yellow crescents sneaks nightward across the borderline of simple hunger and into the lawless landscape of horny-melancholy obsession…which, when you think about it, isn’t that—a preoccupation both depressed and thirsty—the mood of Inherent Vice as a whole? Further, after the wistful Big Sleep-isms of the seductive opening scene, and the twisty-turny plot mechanics of Doc pinballing from Pipeline Pizza to Aunt Reet’s phone line to brunch with Denis to learning the another lesson in the long, sad history of LA land use before taking a ball bat to head after being on the losing end of Jade’s Pussy-Eater’s Special, don’t we deserve a break with the funniest stretch of film in all of Inherent Vice?

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #7: "...welcome to a world of inconvenience..." with Jedidiah Ayres
01:19:34

“What was astonishing to him was how people seemed to run out of their own being, run out of whatever the stuff was that made them who they were and, drained of themselves, turn into the sort of people they would once have felt sorry for. It was as though while their lives were rich and full they were secretly sick of themselves and couldn’t wait to dispose of their sanity and their health and all sense of proportion so as to get down to that other self, the true self, who was a wholly deluded fuckup.”
-Philip Roth, American Pastoral

Well, at long last, we’re finally here. Put on a suit and tie, take the #2 clippers to your hair, and bite into the lightning-blast-to-the-teeth cold of a frozen chocolate-covered banana, because today is the day we tackle the unstoppable force (or is it immovable object?) of Bigfoot Bjornsen. The foil and nemesis and brother and partner and shadow-self to our wayward hero Doc Sportello, Bigfoot is Inherent Vice in flat-topped and flinty microcosm, an exaggerated and funhouse-stretched portrait of loss and longing for times and people passed.
And today, we begin the first in a handful of episodes exploring the twisted mind and broken heart of this warped sheet of plastic as he drifts out of a commercial for Channel View Estates and materializes into that very real estate development, just in time to catch his ol’ buddy Doc catching a snooze next to what suspiciously resembles a bloodied corpse… Together, Travis and crime novelist Jedidiah Ayres chew the rag on this human blitzkrieg of broken machismo aggression and sorrow—just who is Lt. Detective Christian F. “Bigfoot” Bjornsen, and why can’t we stop thinking of him?

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #6: "...not you, bong-brain..." with Drew McWeeny
01:34:45
”A wise man once told me that mystery is the most essential ingredient of life, for the following reason: Mystery creates wonder, which leads to curiosity, which in turn provides the ground for our desire to understand who and what we truly are.”
—Mark Frost, The Secret History of Twin Peaks

Inherent Vice is a film that meditates not just on the impenetrable nature of mystery, but rather its reflective nature—the truest mysteries lead not to resolutions, but reflections of ourselves. In the sunstruck and hazylazy seaside mystery that spins from the Golden Fang, ol’ Doc Sportello is able to see himself and his wayward love, Shasta Fay Hepworth. And in the mystery of Inherent Vice, we are able to see ourselves—our loves found or lost or found again or lost forever; we’re even able to see the very world we live in now, with its cruelty and chaos and small kindnesses, in the very world of the film.
And it’s in that world of free-floating fear and stormy paranoia that today’s guest, Drew McWeeny, suggests that decency is the only anchor—that when the bitter doom of a dying era takes hold, that’s when the little decencies matter most. It’s an idea we explore with Drew as Doc is finally drawn into the mystery plot of Inherent Vice, where he becomes lost among its purple-shagged walls, missing real estate magnates, chatty (and canny) counter girls, and a certain hypocritical and heartbroken LAPD detective with a thing for frozen chocolate covered bananas.

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #5: "...paranoia alert..." with Jordan Harper
01:41:01
“There was a desert wind blowing that night. It was one of those hot dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands' necks. Anything can happen. You can even get a full glass of beer at a cocktail lounge.”
—Raymond Chandler, Red Wind

Los Angeles.
The kind of city where anything that can happen, does happen. And everything that does happen, right and wrong, seems to belong here—it couldn’t happen anywhere else. There’s an air of beauty and shame here, a twisted knot of the city’s glory and its sins bound tight together—unlike the comparatively ancient New York, say, L.A.’s sins are still recent, the wounds still scabbed and unhealed across its golden-hued, suntanned skin. Missing neighborhoods, missing gangs, missing loves, missing lives. In this city, turn any corner, walk down any mean street, and you’ll find a mystery, cruel and enticing and magic and heartbreaking, waiting for you there.
And that’s just one of the topics touched upon between our host and today’s guest, Jordan Harper, whose epic, feature-length conversation rumbles from such topic’s as L.A. crime, race-based prison gangs, the history of Los Angeles land use and abuse, noir’s unique relationship to L.A., James Ellroy, adapting difficult novels, Jordan’s wrestling with the PTA oeuvre, and much, much more (including where to find the best BBQ in Missouri).

About the Guest - JORDAN HARPER
Jordan Harper is the Edgar Award-winning author of the incredible SHE RIDES SHOTGUN and LOVE AND OTHER WOUNDS. He is also a television writer and producer, and wrote/developed the late, great, and unreleased L.A CONFIDENTIAL TV series, which had a pilot so perfect that its demise is final, conclusive proof of God's absence.

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #4: "...tomorrow's another day-which would be today, right?..." with Fran Hoepfner
44:35
Thrilled to have finally wholeheartedly enjoyed a PTA movie so now I can make some male friends.”
—Today’s guest, on Phantom Thread

Apocalypse is very much in the air with this episode—as Doc and Denis are whipped by newspaper-munching Santa Ana winds while learning more and more about Mickey Wolfmann, our host is surrounded by the same winds nearly 50 years later during a particularly fiery and windswept day in Los Angeles in 2019. Further, he’s sitting down with Fran Hoepfner—a brilliant writer, an insightful critic, and…someone for whom Inherent Vice simply doesn’t do much.
But if you’re going to deep-dive into Inherent Vice, part of that conversation includes the many folks and freaks and friends who just…don’t…care. Or, in certain horrifying cases that may or may not now be part of the permanent record with this episode, just don’t like Bigfoot Bjornsen (gasp!).

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #3: "...like Godzilla says to Mothra, man: let's go eat some place..." with Kayleigh Donaldson
01:14:19
“So when Doc and Denis came in that night, it wasn't just the usual hungry doper thing. It was something else. And with Neptune moving at last out of the Scorpio death-trip and rising into the Sagittarian light of the higher mind, it was bound to be something love-related. And I thought I knew what it was…”

There are Inherent Vice fans, and then there’s Kayleigh Donaldson, a writer and critic who has been ardently stanning the film since December of 2012—exactly two years before Inherent Vice was released in theaters. And since that release, she has vociferously declared and defended Vice as Paul Thomas Anderson’s masterpiece.
It’s a level of broad, absolute appreciation that leaves her uniquely suited not only for Increment Vice in general, but this scene in specific, in which Inherent Vice’s two very different tonal extremes—potfogged melancholy and zany comic tableaus—are cat’s-cradled together with some heavy heartache, a few slices of of pizza, “Vitamin C,” and a hair-changing intuition, all into a vast lattice of meaning that only grows deeper with every viewing, and every conversation.

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #2: "...I need your help, Doc..." with Kim Morgan
01:34:32
“It had been dark at the beach for hours, he hadn't been smoking much and it wasn't headlights – but before she turned away, he could swear he saw light falling on her face, the orange light just after sunset that catches a face turned to the west, watching the ocean for someone to come in on the last wave of the day, in to shore and safety.”

Sprawling yet intimate…digressive yet focused…surfing curlicued wavelengths of obsession and obfuscation—such is a fairly apt way of describing the tone of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice; it’s also a fair assessment of tonight’s megaconversation between our host and writer Kim Morgan.

Inherent Vice. The death of the 1960s. Regret. Obsession. Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood. The melancholy of oceans. Linda Darnell. Otto Preminger’s Fallen Angel. Shasta Fay Hepworth. Jacques Demy’s Model Shop. John Garfield. Joaquin Phoenix. Time traveler Thomas Pynchon. Drugs. Paul Thomas Anderson. “Vitamin C.” Dead Pigeon on Beethoven Street. Sam Fuller vs. Film Twitter. Josh Brolin. Bigfoot Bjornsen. Neo-noir shootouts. Ralph Meeker. The ambiguities of cinema, life, and self. The cars of Neil Young. Moviegoing in the mornings. The sorrowing hope of Nick Cave. The sweet heroism of Doc Sportello. These are but a few of the subjects Travis and Kim touch upon as they watch the opening minutes of Inherent Vice and ask one another a single, obsessive question: “Why is this so heartachingly beautiful?”

INCREMENT VICE - EPISODE #1: "She came along the alley and up the back stairs the way she always used to..."
56:14
“…if it’s a quiet night out at the beach and your ex-old lady suddenly out-of-nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land-developer boyfriend, and his wife, and her boyfriend, and a plot to kidnap the billionaire and throw him in a loony-bin…”

A mystery in which the mystery isn’t the point.
A detective story in which the detective seems incapable of remembering all but the most basic facts (and even those require scribbled entries into his pocket notebook).
A film noir set not at night but mostly beneath the milkspilt murk of L.A. County’s smogwhite daylight.

Inherent Vice is a film that deceptively uses its hardboiled detective fiction framework as a method of inquiry into something far deeper, and far more serious, than a plot to kidnap a real estate developer. It tricks us into settling in for a noir about a man solving a mystery, and instead presents us with a man confronting a melancholy truth: everything—lives, eras, and loves—comes to an end.
And so it is with endings that Increment Vice begins. Together with guest Blake Howard, our host Travis Woods dives deep into the film’s opening scene, zigzagging from such topics as Joan Didion to End Of The ‘60s movies to romantic breakups, from the (maybe?) illusory nature of Vice character Sortilège all the way to the wry, smirking warmth at the heart of Paul Thomas Anderson’s heartbreaking, hilarious film.

37:59
In the finale of The Last (12 minutes) of the Mohicans, I join the auteur behind this masterwork - Michael Mann. Mr Mann and I talk about existence on the planet Earth, the criticality of Wes Studi's performance for the success of this drama, the singularity of Daniel Day-Lewis as a performer, the twilight zone of the frontier and so much more.

This episode was brought to you by Via Vision Entertainment.

About the show:

THE LAST (12 minutes) OF THE MOHICANS is a twelve-episode limited podcast series focusing on the climax of the Michael Mann's 1992 epic The Last of the Mohicans. The format of the podcast, which slightly differs from ONE HEAT MINUTE, utilises the entire final twelve-minute climax of Mohicans as a portal to explore the themes of the movie. The show examines the cross-section of political apparatuses, colonial superpower wrangling, and Mr Mann's riff on the "great American hero." The final episode - once again will feature Mr Mann to unpack his intentions with the film in the conception and orchestration of its grand ending.

THE LAST (12 minutes) OF THE MOHICANS: Episode 11: Manohla Dargis (Chief Film Critic at the New York Times) and Matt Zoller Seitz (Ed at Large of RogerEbert.com, TV critic for New York Magazine)
01:45:48
In the penultimate episode of the series I join - in my opinion - the world's greatest living film critic, The New York Times co-chief film critic, Manohla Dargis. Manohla confesses that she fell in love with Michael Mann's work watching The Last of the Mohicans.

And to close, I join co-author of THE SOPRANOS SESSIONS, TV and film critic for Vulture and Editor-at-Large of RogerEbert.com - the equally legendary - Matt Zoller Seitz. Matt tells me that Magua is one of his favourite characters in the history of movies, and so much more.

02:06:57
First up, in this two-part episode, I join staff writer Bright Wall/ Dark Room, contributor for Cinephilia & Beyond and host of the upcoming INCREMENT VICE podcast, Travis Woods. Travis opens the episode by hounding Blake about tempting fate with another Michael Mann podcast. Their war party then continues, going deep on Mann's "time is luck" theme resonating all the more powerfully in Mohicans.

TIME: 01:32

To close the episode, I join joins film and television critic with Fairfax Media and creator of BINGE-R Mr Craig Mathieson. Blake and Craig discuss Mann's uncanny ability to swell and contract form the collective to the individual focus and that it's kind of a miracle that this film exists.

THE LAST (12 minutes) OF THE MOHICANS: Episode 9: Sean Burns (Film Critic at WBUR's The ARTery) and Jen Johans (Film Critic + Screenwriter)
01:04:01
First up, in this two-part episode, I join Staff Writer at WBUR's The ARTery and a Contributing Writer at North Shore Movies - my favourite Bostonian - Sean Burns. Sean recounts hilarious observations of Boston labourers working with Daniel Day-Lewis on the set of The Crucible, before gushing about the beauty of 90s Madeleine Stowe.

To close the episode, I join Jen Johans film critic and screenwriter to discuss symphonies of trios echoing throughout the film and the double devastation of Uncas and Alice's death.

ABOUT SEAN BURNS

ABOUT JEN JOHANS

An avid film buff and three-time national award-winning writer, the only time Jen Johans ever got into trouble in school, was for talking about movies during quiet time. Jen Johans received a BA in Film Studies and was dubbed a walking movie encyclopaedia. Dedicated to sharing her love of film with others, Johans went from working on local festivals to curating and hosting a film discussion series before she launched the first version of her site Film Intuition in her final semester back in 2006.

Originally devoted solely to the work of female filmmakers (hence its name), although she branched out as readership grew to cover everything from classic to modern mainstream fare, after twelve years and 2,400 pieces, Jen Johans remains just as committed as ever to reviewing films made by women. Likewise eager to showcase foreign, arthouse, and indie titles often overlooked on other sites, when she isn't writing about or watching movies, chances are she can be found talking about them on Twitter (@FilmIntuition) where there's no such thing as quiet time.

THE LAST (12 minutes) OF THE MOHICANS: Episode 6: Dante Spinotti (Cinematographer The Last of the Mohicans, Heat, L.A. Confidential)
37:50
It's an honour to bring you a chat with one of the greatest living cinematographers, the legendary Dante Spintotti (cinematographer of THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS & HEAT). In this bombshell laden discussion, Dante and I discuss joining the film four weeks into production; his contribution to the film's aesthetic and constructing the titanic face-off between Magua (Wes Studi) and Chingachgook (Russell Means).


ABOUT DANTE SPINOTTI
Dante Spinotti was born in Tolmezzo, Udine, in the northeastern Italian Region of Friuli. He began his career at RAI (Italian T.V.), before that he spent a lot of time in Kenia as cinematographer for his uncle. In 1985, producer Dino De Laurentiis offered him a chance to work in the USA for the first time with Michael Mann for the feature Manhunter (1986). From that experience, Spinotti became one of the most appreciated cinematographers in Hollywood. His particular vision gives a movie a great sense of reality. Among his works are The Last of the Mohicans (1992) (Academy Nomination), Heat (1995), L.A. Confidential (1997) (Academy Nomination), The Insider (1999) (Academy Nomination), and Wonder Boys (2000). He married his wife Marcella, and they live in Los Angeles, Rome, and Tolmezzo.

Part Two: Prolific Australian film and T.V critic Cam Williams and I take a wander down nostalgia lane to talk about discovering Mohicans in Australia circa. 1993, before formally apologising to any Mann fans who’ve begun to embark on a minute by minute Mohicans examination for stealing their thunder.

The film’s extended finale - triggered by the delivery of tribal justice until the credits roll - is arguably one of the greatest endings to almost any movie ever.

The Last of the Mohicans is adapted (and significantly altered from) James Fenimore Cooper novel. Set in 1757, Mohicans follows three trappers who are inadvertently drawn into the French and Indian War when they rescue the daughters of a British Colonel and a British Captain escort from an ambush. It stars Academy Award Winner Daniel Day-Lewis, Madeleine Stowe, Academy Award Winner* Wes Studi, Russell Means, Eric Schweig, Jodhi May and Steven Waddington.
