Episode 11 – Im Keller (In the Basement) – 2014

The terrific Lex Morales joins me in this episode of FFPÖ to talk about the literally buried world of the Austrian soul. We explore the entertaining, thought-provoking and downright disturbing basements of Normal Joe and Jane and many, many questions pile up in this here episode.

Thanks to Lex Morales to co-host this show and follow him on:

Episode 10 – Das finstere Tal – The Dark Valley – 2014

For the 10th episode, we prepared something special, made in the US of A with a real New York comedian as my guest host Julianna D. Meagher, how exciting. We look at the 2014 break-out hit from Austria, The Dark Valley, an Austrian movie in the style of a western and we ask too many questions with too many answers in this behemoth of an episode.

Episode 9 – Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei – The Edukators – 2004

In a very special episode of FFPÖ we don’t have one American co-host but instead doubling down on the Austrian and we have a brand new guest co-host embodied by the funny and smart Florian Reichl and also a secret guest pops up, so stay tuned for our review of The Edukators, a movie from 2004 that revolutionized Austrian and German filmmaking and with a message that still rings true today.

Episode 8 – Space Patrol Orion – Hüter des Gesetzes – 1966

In a new and very special episode I invite Scott Foster Harris (http://scottfosterharris.com/) to talk about bursting Lasers, inconvenient Robots, magnificent Hairdos, winning smiles and baffling dance moves, because we watched the 3rd episode of Space Patrol Orion!

Episode 7 – Das merkwürdige Verhalten geschlechtsreifer Großstädter zur Paarungszeit – 1998

After a long break our summer hiatus is over and we are back with a new and exciting episode of FFPÖ! Nelly and I sit back at the table to discuss this gem of German 90ness and ask: Who is this movie for? Can the music be more awesome? Who is the main character? Why is this movie such a hot mess? All this and more we try to answer in the 7th episode and we try our best.

Episode 6 – Space Patrol Orion – Planet außer Kurs – 1966

We continue our trek through the stars and those stars are aligned for a war, a star battle of sorts if you will, happens in this episode. Nelly and I apply our drunken senses to get to the core of this action-laden episode in less then 15 minutes and find nearly only good things to say.

Episode 4 – Ein halbes Leben (Half a Life) – 2009

A moving movie where the inability to move on drives the plot. Nelly and Paul try to give other actors next to Josef Hader a chance but his saddening appearance and demeanor just overshadow everything, including the horrifying and complicated matter that this film presents us with. Definitely not for the faint of heart.

Episode 3 – Last Action Hero – 1993

In the latest episode of FFPÖ Nelly and I try to pry open the wonderchest, that is this Arnold Braunschweiger vehicle that wasn’t well received at the time but still got our attention nonetheless. An enjoyable ride that tries to go full circle but does end up biting its tail at several points.

Episode 2 – Der Schüler Gerber (The Student Gerber) – 1981

In the second episode of FFPÖ Nelly and Paul discuss the TV movie The Student Gerber, an Austrian classic based on the novel of the same name. We talk about flashbacks of our own education and the power this movie still represents.

Episode 1 – Tiger- Frühling in Wien (Springtime in Vienna) – 1984

In the first ever episode of FFPÖ, Nelly and I try our best to come up with a plan to describe this movie in all its glory and we fail sadly. This cry for help from Peter Patzak is a long lost gem of Austrian film and it goes very nicely with 3-4 six-packs. A proper start for this here podcast.
