Podcast Epiode 63: Walken on Sunshine

A list of films discussed in episode 63 of The Brattle Film Podcast. Diving deep into the ‘80s filmography of one of our favorite actors, we discuss the unique performance style of Christopher Walken; his sense of humor, sense of menace, skills as a dancer, the many commercial failures he made as a leading man during this decade, and why we think his '80s movies are all worthy of revisiting. Along the way, we get into many cultural aspects of the decade: Madonna power ballads, the Roger Moore era of James Bond, Golan-Globus fairy tale musicals, pre-CGI special effects, actors who say "yes" to every role, and real-life alien abductions.
