Hal Ashby & The Familiar Trials of his Male Protagonists

Closed Set w/ Themistoklis Alexis

This episode takes a stab at covering the life and early work of Hal Ashby (1929-1988), a director who was synonymous with the New Hollywood era of the 70s and helmed a string of beloved films that often doubled as social commentaries, including The Landlord, Harold & Maude, The Last Detail, and Shampoo. We'll revisit these films, Ashby's apprenticeship under filmmaker Norman Jewison, his contradictions, and the parallels between his male protagonists and his own life.

Watch With Jen - S3: E5 - Hal Ashby with Duncan Birmingham

Watch With Jen™

Striking while the iron is hot and while people's schedules are most open, we're back with another bonus episode for you this week and you are definitely in for a treat.A writer and filmmaker based in Los Angeles, today's guest Duncan Birmingham was an executive producer and screenwriter for IFC's "Maron" and also served as a co-executive producer and writer on the Starz series "Blunt Talk" as well. Additionally, Duncan's short films have premiered at such festivals as Sundance and AFI, and his screenplay "Swingles," which was bought by Paramount, was also on The Black List. Recently, his lively, irreverent short-story collection "The Cult in My Garage" was published by Maudlin House in 2021, and in other exciting news, he just wrapped his first feature-length film as a writer-director called "Who Invited Them?" starring Ryan Hansen, Melissa Tang, Timothy Granaderos, and Perry Mattfeld.In easily one of my favorite research-intensive episodes so far on Watch With Jen, Duncan joined me to cover the incredible run of films made by chronically under-discussed Oscar-winning editor turned masterful '70s director Hal Ashby. An empathetic collaborative filmmaker who was fascinated by human relationships, in this rich ninety-minute conversation, we delve into the films "Harold and Maude," "The Last Detail," "Shampoo," "Coming Home," and "Being There."Here you'll hear stories about Ashby fighting with the studios over marketing and foul language, his notably democratic film sets where everyone had a voice, ambitious abandoned projects, as well as thoughts on the performances that would garner 11 Oscar nominations throughout the decade, not to mention the way that contemporary filmmakers still seek inspiration in his work today. Settle in; it's a good one.Originally Posted on Patreon (2/19/22) here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/62775976Theme Music: Solo Acoustic Guitar by Jason Shaw, Free Music ArchiveLogo: Kate Gabrielle (KateGabrielle.com)

The guys chat about the acclaimed director of the classics Harold & Maude and Being There (along with many others), discuss how Ashby is an anomaly among classic '70s directors, Ashby's stylistic quirks, and his greatest cinematic moments.  And of course they also do an Ashby top 3, because that's inevitable for these kinds of podcasts. It's 90 minutes of interesting discussion about an underappreciated director.

Ep48: Hal Ashby- den bortglömde rebellen


Få regissörer satte ett lika stort avtryck på 1970-talet som Hal Ashby. Trots detta är han numera i stort sett okänd för den breda publiken. I detta avsnitt försöker vi därför summera Ashbys karriär och lägger särskilt fokus på hans fyra bästa filmer. “Harold & Maude” (1971), “The last detail” (1973), “Coming home” (1978) och “Being there” (1979). Helan och Halvan och Långarydssläkten nämns också i förbifarten. Vi som gör podden heter Karsten Karlsson och Henrik Harej.Kontakta oss gärna på: movieboxpod@gmail.com

Especial Hal Ashby: 50 años de Harold y Maude

El DeLorean

Estrenamos nueva temporada en el DeLorean con un cambio de formato pero las mismas voces y espíritu de siempre. En esta ocasión hablamos del cine de Hal Ashby a partir de Harold y Maude, la película que lanzó a la fama al director y lo encumbraría como uno de los grandes nombres del llamado 'Nuevo Hollywood' que reinó en los años 70. Para hablar de esta disparatada y negra comedia están Pablo Vergara (@BonaseraPablo), Rafa Morillo (@solopeliculas_) y David Pardillos (@Davidpardi97), todo al ritmo de Cat Stevens.
