12/6/2020 On this week's episode we talk about the 1954 movie Johnny Guitar by Nicholas Ray alongside Robocop (Paul Verhoeven, 1987) and Robocop 2 (Irvin Kershner, 1990). Eventually, we came around to the idea that these movies are connected by certain ideas about the weird, fucked up relationship between ownership and responsibility. Maybe? Also, isn't it weird that Kershner directed Robocop 2 AND The Empire Strikes Back? Isn't it weird that Mercedes McCambridge, who plays one of the most evil monsters of all time in Johnny Guitar, ends up being the voice of the demon in The Exorcist? Huh? Right?
