Episode 9: Phantom of the Paradise

Phantom of the Paradise

I want this Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s next musical.


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┬áthe 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”!


Phantom of the Paradise

Legalese that clearly says what it means.
