Ep. 345: Kill Chain (2019)

28Nov

The GenreCast 2019 Retrospective continues this week with Dustin's blind bag special: Kill Chain. This Nicolas Cage-starring noir-inspired thriller attempts to pull off a gimmicky narrative wherein a number of hit men, spies, and assassins try to make it through a night in an unknown town in Colombia. The little known straight-to-streaming film is Cage's seventh collaboration with Millennium films. On this week's episode, we get into what noir means to us, looking at mode, style, and genre. We spend time discussing form and function of film. We also get into a discussion of the film's gimmick and if it works or not. But, before all of that, we expand the syllabus to discuss B-tier trash movies, studio cycles, and Baroque Noir. Tune in now!
