Discussed in this episode:
Boston Underground Film Festival: Runs March 22-26 in (you guessed it) Boston. Movies of interest include the retro sci-fi Divinity; folk horror Enys Men; Piaffe (a sexy movie about a woman who grows a horse tail); the “Gilliamesque” fantasy Moon Dream; and Quentin Dupieux‘s highly anticipated latest, Smoking Causes Coughing (trailer here). Boston Underground Film Festival home page.
Country Gold (2022): Read Giles Edwards’ festival review and listen to interview with director Mickey Reece. Reece’s latest unclassifiable movie is a semi-surreal biopic of a fictional country music singer. Opens this week in NYC, traveling to select cities afterwards, then streaming exclusively on Fandor starting April 4. Country Gold linktree.
Glorious (2022): Read Giles Edwards’ review. Is this the weirdest movie set in a glory hole? Find out on DVD or Blu-ray (or VOD). Buy Glorious.

For those who believe that imperfection should not be messed with, the good news is that it’s being done as a benefit for The Foundation for AIDS Research. Slashfilm has the deets.
Zapper! (2023): Criminals try to steal a longboard in a psychedelic universe where bananas fire laser beams. This sophomore microbudget feature is advertised as “a trip by Nick Gatsby” and debuts on Tubi (and some other free services as well.) Zapper! on Tubi.
WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE:
Next week’s Pod 366 will have a special guest: Tim Lightell, director of Manbaby (now on Tubi). In online reviews, Shane Wilson tackles another one that Came from the Reader-Suggested Queue with the award-winning 30-minute sci-fi short “Analog” (which is available for free viewing). Pete Trbovich was intrigued enough by the description of the 60s sex comedy The Bliss of Mrs. Blossom in Pod 33, Episode 9 to drop off a full-length print review. Next up is a massive treat as El Rob Hubbard drops a thorough investigation of the “House of Psychotic Women” box set. Finally,
