It’s 112 degrees Fahrenheit at the offices of Rational Exuberance North, as we post this … No matter how hot it gets, and no matter how hot tempers get in Washington, D.C. where Stephen Colbert visited Congress, or in Hollywood, where the Screen Actors Guild held their annual elections, or in bankruptcy court where Blockbuster filed for Chapter 11, or on television, where “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” shines a bright light on the plight of hundreds of thousands of rape survivors who have to wait up to thirteen years to have their rape kit evidence tested … No matter how HOT … You can always enjoy the coolness of your Chillpak Hollywood Hour! Show business. The BUSINESS of show. The politics of running a business AND the politics of putting on a show. Dean and Phil touch ‘em all. Enjoy!
Dean Haglund tasked Phil Leirness with providing a primer on the work of the late Claude Chabrol, a founding figure of the French New Wave, and a prolific film artist who has often been described as the “French Alfred Hitchcock”. Phil approaches this fulfills this task with his usual thoroughness, so keep that Netflix queue handy! Dean and Phil just got back from a screening of the 2nd edit of their feature documentary, The Truth Is Out There and they share their frustrations, their hopes, their aims and the challenges facing them moving forward. Fall is traditionally the season when it becomes safe for adults (or those youths with discriminating tastes) to return to the cinema, so Dean and Phil continue the cinematic discussion with two films they’re looking forward to, one about to be released AND one currently being cast. Plus they take on the marketing of Never Let Me Go and express their delight over the latest television adventures of Martin Scorsese, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
