Subversive cinema and our free society
On this edition of Robservations, writer-producer-director, Robert Meyer Burnett, takes a closer look at the Stanley Kubrick classic, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, and how subversive films helped drive social conversation. RMB also discusses a number of other subversive films, including …
- Are Quentin Tarrantino movies subversive? Oh. Yeah.
- In search of a 4K version of PRAYER OF THE ROLLERBOYS
- WILD IN THE STREETS … because what rock star wouldn’t make a good President?
- Peter Watkins movies like THE GLADIATORS and PUNISHMENT PARK
- ROLLERBALL – highly recommended by RMB (look for precursors of ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, HUNGER GAMES and BATTLE ROYALE)
- SOYLENT GREEN (spoiler: it’s people, people)
- Gaspar Noé’s masterpiece, ENTER THE VOID
And talk about subversive, Rob shares his fond memories of working with Bryan Singer and Adam Robitel on the Behind-The-Scenes content for the SUPERMAN RETURNS blu-ray home video … plus super-chat questions from viewers, movie tips, and more.
