The King and Queens of the Erotic Thriller (feat. Jacob Knight) | Episode 54
Posted February 14, 2017
With Michael Douglas' sexy trilogy of FATAL ATTRACTION (1987), BASIC INSTINCT(1992) and DISCLOSURE (1994), American pop noir hit a real hot streak about 25 years back. This week, we discuss the genre hybrid that introduces a flawed Douglas protagonist to his match/demise in the femme fatale's of Glenn Close, Sharon Stone and Demi Moore.
On an episode that's necessarily explicit and just as politically interested, we've got a guest to boot.
3:35 - FATAL ATTRACTION, and how Glenn Close wins and loses big
20:35 - Can this podcast handle the insanity of BASIC INSTINCT?
28:05 - Writer Jacob Knight guests as our Paul Verhoeven scholar
50:54 - DISCLOSURE won't let you ignore its reactionary politics
