The Vampire, the Western, and the Setting Sun!
In our 13th episode, David and Shaun play catch-up on films left over from last year with an intense discussion of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1987 vampire western, Near Dark. Among the subjects under discussion: the cinematography and the western myth, where Near Dark went wrong (and where it veered heavily into “that’s interesting” territory), and what Near Dark says about the 1980s vampire film — plus much more. We also briefly discuss Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens (2015), since David didn’t get to participate in the Skiffy and Fanty Show episode on the movie!
- Near Dark (1987)
- Our next film is High Noon (1952). Here’s how you can watch them:
