It's a masterpiece of American Avant Garde cinema, and a film with a story of ebb and flow and how you SHOULDN'T make a movie. Lucifer Rising was one of the most important films of 1980 that's not on the National Film Registry!
We begin our look at the amazing cinematic year that was 1980 with a consideration of Friday the 13th. Yes, it was the beginning of a massively important franchise that also didn't quite fit what the franchise would become. We look at the reasons it should be on the National Film Registry, what the impact was on the world of genre film, and why it and Halloween are so important.
How should the Registry recognise the work of the legendary director John Waters? In this episode, I examine the possibility of four films that might be worthy - Pink Flamingoes, Female Troubles, Hairspray, and Cecil B. Demented.
