Listeners! Take a listen as Mike gets his mind blown by PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE!
Brian DePalma’s 1974 rock opera is gloriously garish with literary references galore, Paul Williams’ soundtrack is a smorgasbord of musical styles settling in on glam-prog-rock, and William Finley eats allll the scenery as the titular phantom, Winslow Leach.
DePalma’s second movie, two years before CARRIE, is confident, stylish, and wildly entertaining. Take a listen, and let it bring you to “Life at Last”!
