There’s a deep dive into the filmmaker and foot fetishist’s 2019 summer blockbuster, Once Upon a Time In Hollywood.

The Mortician’s Daughter: The Lives and Deaths of Saints [podcast]

In this latest installment of The Mortician’s Daughter, we talk about avoiding the summer heat (and resultant depression) here in the Sonoran Desert and about the paths to Sainthood, obviously. You might not see the initial correlation between these two ideas, but in fifteen minutes, I can draw the line. Yes, as any art historian can tell you, the road to sainthood is quite violent for those martyred for their faith…

Prizefighting Kangaroo Episode 10: Whit’s Up! — Movies Directed by Whit Stillman

In our continued celebration of directors in 2019, for this episode we’ve invited a guest — Phoenix-based journalist Tom Reardon — to join us to chat about one of his favorite directors, Whit Stillman. With only seven movies under his directorship, Stillman hasn’t been terribly prolific but he has managed to maintain a following and create opinions about his movies that often follow the lives of young, rich kids in NYC. Let’s just say not everyone in this convo holds the same level of fandom… of the director and of socialites…

Nietzsche and Eternal Recurrence

The Mortician’s Daughter 005: Nietzsche and Eternal Recurrence

This time around, I’m here to briefly touch upon Nietzsche and Eternal Recurrence. Now, Friedrich Nietzsche presents such a large and looming figure — philosophically, culturally, and personally — that I feel we will be revisiting him and his work again in the months and years to come so, instead of getting too carried away right off the bat, I thought it might be best to narrow our focus and touch upon one of his more popular notions: Eternal Recurrence. We can save the Übermensch and Nazis and horse-whipping crazy-house for another day…
