Australian dramedy Mental is “good fun,” says Luke Buckmaster. It’s “a total mess,” retorts Rich Haridy. This fortnight The Parallax Podcast boys discuss argue about Mental, fawn over Oliver Stone’s latest film and get a report on this year’s Fantastic Fest from cult film guru Zak Hepburn.
In a fiery episode of The Parallax Podcast, reviewers Luke Buckmaster and Rich Haridy lock horns over writer/director P.J. Hogan’s new Australian dramedy Mental and ultra lowbrow schlock fest Piranha 3DD (now on DVD).
They also fawn over Savages, the latest hyper-real action flick from veteran rabble-rouser Oliver Stone and discuss Kenneth Lonergan’s long-anticipated coming-of-age drama Margaret, starring Anna Paquin and Matt Damon.
A jet-lagged Zak Hepburn joins the podcast couch to report on this year’s Fantastic Fest, which he attended in Austin, Texas.
