Cinematalk October 6 2013

This week, JohnnyMelodica takes a look at food in film, and explores themes of commensailty in Federico Fellini’s “Satyricon,” a 1969 (and what better year to make a movie?) film adaptation of the ancient work by Petronius, an account of a night of decadence and debauchery on the town called Rome, a phantasmagoria at times hideous, hilarious, spellbinding and unhinging.  Also Julie Taymor’s 1999 transhistorical adaptation of the Bard’s tragedy “Titus Andronicus,” a violent and visceral tale of family, food, power, and bloody revenge also set at the dizzying height of the Empire.  See what happens when geniuses, goddesses and madmen, beggars, thieves, charlatans, lovers and frauds share the table in this fun-packed episode of Cinematalk.
