224: SFFCH – Phantom of The Paradise [1974]

224 Phantom of the Paradise

I bet most of you know Brian De Palma as a director of cool crime dramas of the 80’s and 90’s, but it is his formative early years of the 70’s that has take the Spoiler Filled Crew’s interest, most specifically the oddity that is Phantom of The Paradise, a glam yet somehow drab allegory of the music industry. If you like your cult musicals with a bit of horror, Faust, Phantom of the Opera , Dorian Grey and incomprehensible bird symbolism then this is the film for you! Or maybe not as the case may be… This time we we are subjected to: Rock Palaces, unnecessary teeth removal, the original Birdman costume, ornate furniture we all crave and Beef, the wonderful Beef.
