Episode 13. Near Dark (1987; dir. Kathryn Bigelow): The Vampire, the Western, and the Setting Sun

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!
