POP ART: Episode 22, The Blues Brothers/Silence (1971)

“We’re on a mission from God.” Feel like there’s something you should be doing that you aren’t? Are you ignoring some calling, perhaps? Maybe that there is some sort of goal, or even a mission, that you should be on? The perfect time for Episode 22 of Pop Art, the podcast where my guest chooses a movie from popular culture and I’ll select a film from the more art/classic side of cinema with a connection to it. For my listeners, please like, follow or comment. I’m especially looking for more reviews on iTunes and I’d love to know what you think. This time around, my guests, fellow podcasters Anna Keizer and Derek Dehanke, have chosen the Dan Ackroyd/John Belushi musical extravaganza The Blues Brothers, while I chose the austere 1971 Japanese masterpiece by Masahiro ShinodaSilence, both with stories about characters on a mission from God. And here we answer such questions as: Are Nazis funny? Who or what is a Mako and would you want to be one? Is there cultural appropriation here? Why didn’t the Blues Brothers do better at the box office than it did? Why did it go over budget? Which is the better film—Shinoda’s or Scorcese’s? Listen to Anna and Derek’s podcast 80’s Movie Montage on popular streaming sites. And look out for Anna’s supernatural dark comedy short She Had it Coming.
