What’s up, Bogs? Siblo and Whalen dip back into the Rad Carpet curriculum by watching and discussing some of the key early films of ascotted New Hollywooder Peter Bogdanovich, beginning here with his revered coming-of-age drama The Last Picture Show and the smash hit screwball throwback What’s Up, Doc? But first, the Carpet unfurls for the return of CJ5000, who hops on the mic for a fresh round of In or Out?, with the trio dishing takes on biopics and on somber star (and soon to be Joker?) Joaquin Phoenix. Siblo and Whalen also share their thoughts on 2018’s biggest release to date, Marvel’s Black Panther. It’s an absolutely jam packed episode: hit play and get rad!
Do you have takes on these early Bogdonavich films? Are you in or out on Phoenix? Were we too tough on biopics? What exactly qualifies as a biopic? Any particular favorites that we missed? Any warm Black Panther takes you’d like to share? Jot away in the comments section below, or hit us up on Twitter (@theradcarpet) or via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org)–we’d love to hear what you think, and there’s a good chance we’ll read what you have to say on the air!
There’s two more Bogdanovich films to cue up for next episode, the fan favorite Paper Moon and the notorious bomb Daisy Miller. We’ll also be bringing on a guest, Vice’s Dan Ozzi, to Carpet Clean the beloved record store romcom High Fidelity. Stay tuned, and stay rad!
