It’s Episode 83? The brothers de Semlyen Nick (Empire Magazine) and Phil (Time Out) return for Nick’s choice, the 1985 John Landis film Into the Night.
Starring Jeff Goldblum and Michelle Pfeffier with a cameo appearance from David Bowie and numerous famous and obscure directors.
It’s fair to say this is one of Landis and Goldblums leader know films despite its era and cast, probably because it’s a very strange film.
Surprisingly frequently violent and really, really dark it is also punctuated by moments of comedy and moments that wouldn’t be out of place in a David Lynch film. There isn’t really much point in trying to explain the plot, if you’re a fan of any of its stars or directions involved and haven’t seen it yet it’s definitely worth a watch. If you’re a film buff you can always just watch it and play spot the director!
Kobi isn’t sure what he thinks of it and Helen thinks it’s weird - Into the Night has many similarities with Midnight Run but without the funny, sweet buddy moments and more nudity.
[supsystic-tables id='85']The Blues Brothers it isn’t, Into the Night scores low across all the categories (except small score) but still manages to scrap a overall score of 2.62, not essential but not too terrible either.
