~~ Episode 19 - Francis Ford Coppola’s Rumble Fish ~~

When it was announced Masters of Cinema were going to be including a Francis Ford Coppola film our initial hopes were of course Jack would be making appearance. Instead, we were graced with one of Coppola’s lesser known and discussed work Rumble Fish.

Made in a period when Coppola’s stock in Hollywood was low, Rumble Fish is one of the directors more personal stories. In this episode Joakim is joined by Scott Nye to share his thoughts on what Coppola himself has stated is one of his personal favorites.

The show returns! Joakim doesn’t quite solo enlisting the help of blogger and all round film guru Peter Labuza. Their choice of Masters of Cinema release; Will Success Ruin Spoil Rock Hunter? Its a film that pokes fun at fame, Hollywood and popular culture and unlike Meet the Spartans actually does so in a way that is both funny and thought provoking.
