The death of Joan Rivers was both like and unlike Robin Williams’ death. Like Williams, she was a talent who was full of life and never seemed to stop working up until the end. Unlike Williams, who was also experiencing health issues, she didn’t die by her own hand. Despite that, though, the loss of […]

Like many of you, I was shocked to hear of the death of Robin Williams on August 11th, 2014. Williams’ work was an essential part of so many of our childhoods and continued to be so as we grew into adults. I would like to share some memories of my favorite work from this much […]

Teresa Ganzel stars in "Viagra Falls," along with Lou Cutelle and Harold Gould.

Several years ago, back when I was writing for RetroJunk, I sent my next interview subject an e-mail asking about the possibility of an interview.

In the days when you could buy 80s movies on DVD individually from a store, as opposed to, at those same stores, multi-film packs that stripped the titles of extras, I bought quite a few titles from these displays. One of them was the 1984 comedy “Blame It On Rio”. I purchased it after having […]
