055: SFFCH – Memoirs Of An Invisible Man

055 MemInvisManSF

Spoiler Filled Film Conversation, Hooray turns its attention to John Carpenter and his 1992 effort ‘Memoirs of an Invisible Man’, as suggested by Rich. Notable for the traditional Carpenter love of practical effects but also for not being called ‘John Carpenter’s Memoirs of an Invisible Man’ this is one of the definitive mixed bags of film-dom, as exemplified by the choice of the ever divisive Chevy Chase in the leading role. Join Rich, Ant and Abi, as they puzzle through a movie in which Sam Neill DOESN’T DIE, we have the classical shoehorned in romance, a mess of different genres and lack of focus, some inspired physical comedy sequences, Mike McKean, and an unfortunate brown-face makeup. (Ep 55, Rec 2014)
