This week, on a very special episode of Reject Radio, we talk with Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure director Matthew Bate, discuss the love letter Drive with director Nicolas Winding Refn, and talk intentionally bad filmmaking with The Worst Movie Ever! director Glenn Berggoetz.
That’s two movies with exclamation marks in the title. Can you get more excited than that?
On This Week’s Show:
The Vodka [Beginning – 22:24]: In the early 90s, Eddie Lee Sausage and Mitchell D. recorded their noisy, alcoholic neighbors Ray Huffman and Peter Haskett fighting. It became a cult, viral phenomenon, and director Matthew Bate explores that with his new film Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure. He joins us to talk about art being made without the subject’s knowledge and the insane world of Ray and Pete.
Drive, He Said [22:24 – 35:15]: Nicolas Winding Refn explains why Drive is an emotional message for his wife and what he’s afraid of.
Successful Failure [33:15 – The End]: When Worst Movie Ever! made $11 at the box office, it became the lowest grossing opening weekend of all time. Glenn Berggoetz joins me to talk about the difficulty of making a mess, unexpected notoriety, and the style of schlock.
