Cultpix Radio Ep.60 - "4 O'Clock" is the Comedy Noir Film You Need To Watch
Jan 12, 2023 Season 6 Episode 60
Django Nudo, the Smut Peddler and Robert Flanagan

Django Nudo and the Smutpeddler discuss this week’s theme of 80’s American horror films, and why they can only be watched by our North American members. (Clue: rights issues.) But there will also be upcoming themes where the US audience won’t be able to watch some films, so it kind of evens out. But, Cultpix's main goal is as always, to be a truly global streaming platform and cult.

However, the main theme this week is our prominent guest, filmmaker and artist Robert Flanagan, with both New York and Guatemala as his playgrounds!

And more specifically his 1996 film "4 O’Clock", an amazing, no-budget film noir comedy, shot in grainy 16mm!

We give him third-degree interrogation, questioning him on the film; the inspirations, the ideas behind it, the budget, the cast, the music, the cinematography, the dialogue, the editing, the props, the legalities of some locations, and New York as a character of its own in the film.

And also about the film’s recent restoration/makeover from the original 16mm negative!

There is mention of Roberto Rossellini, Jean-Luc Godard, Edward D Wood Jr, Tommy Wiseau, European spy movies, Doris Wishman, surf music and lots more!

You don’t want to miss out on this well-hidden gem, which is finally reaching a global audience, after having been shown theatrically only in New York back in the day.
