| 0 comments

When what Captain Sisko thought was a changeling takeover turns out to be a Federation power grab, it’s somehow even more difficult than before to know who his friends are. But when Admiral Leyton's coup d'état breaks down like a Coupe DeVille, his plans to pave over paradise are jeopardized for good. Can you wear a com badge to the brig? Are guile and paradise mutually exclusive? What is “The Greatest Gen Promise”? It’s the episode that reaches through the brood!

Switchblade Sisters Episode 78: 'Mulholland Drive' with 'Wild Nights with Emily' Director Madeleine Olnek

Mulholland Drive

Madeleine Olnek is a New York City based playwright and filmmaker. She began her career with award-winning and widely screened comedy shorts. ​Countertransference ​(2009) and Hold Up ​(2006) were official selections of Sundance, while ​Make Room For Phyllis ​(2007) premiered at Sarasota. Olnek was also awarded best female short film director at Sundance in 2009 by LA’s Women In Film organization. Her debut feature, ​Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same, told the story of three lesbian space aliens who come to Earth, and one of them falls in love with an earthling. It ​premiered at Sundance 2011 and is now translated into eleven languages. Her second feature, ​The Foxy Merkins,​ is a kind of buddy-comedy homage about two lesbian prostitutes. She is one of the authors of The Practical Handbook for The Actor (with a foreword by David Mamet), a widely used acting textbook. And now she’s back with her third feature, Wild Nights with Emily, a perhaps more truthful yet comic telling of the life of Emily Dickinson, starring Molly Shannon as the eponymous poet. Madeleine was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship for the completion of the film, so it is a BIG DEAL.

The movie that Madeleine has chosen to discuss is one that she calls a "masterpiece." That would be David Lynch's Mulholland Drive. Madeleine likens the film to The Bible in that there are many interpretations that are applicable across generations. She discusses how she is personally connected to the film and how she felt that it truly mirrored her own life. Madeleine even dons David Lynch "our great poet of filmmaking" and explains why this film (and Inland Empire) are his greatest poems. She also discusses why she cast Molly Shannon in her newest film, Wild Nights with Emily. And how most literary adaptations do not properly portray the true words and feelings of a piece of literature. She ends the conversation with explaining why artists have the moral obligation to put humor in their work, and how making a straight drama is not a creative choice.

You can check out Wild Night with Emily in theaters now.

If you haven't seen it yet, go watch Mulholland Drive.

With April Wolfe and Madeleine Olnek.

Show: 
One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Lucy Knisley

Biz and Theresa wonder if we should stand up for our partners when our kids show a preference for Mom. “I don’t want Papa to take me!” “I love Mama more, it's just a fact.” We get that this is developmental in many ways but maybe, on those dark days, our resentment might cloud our response. “Well, of course they love me more, I’m president of everything!” Oops. Maybe we are the jerk. Plus Biz gets scarred for life, Theresa does not know when to hold ‘em, and we welcome back graphic novelist Lucy Knisley to talk about her new graphic memoir Kid Gloves: Nine Months of Careful Chaos.

Listen to Lucy's previous OBM appearance on episode 255.

When changelings bomb a diplomatic conference, Ben Sisko heads to Earth to try to prevent a war. But when it turns out his own father looks like Admiral Cartwright, the Khitomer vibes really get out of control. Is Dax prank-flirting with Odo? Is religion a good topic of conversation for the workplace? How did they convince the assholes to leave Earth? It’s the episode that can’t decide whether it’s grieving or doing bits.
