Moviedrome Mondays: Caged Heat (1974) (Mark Cousins intro)

I have posted a youtube video link below to Moviedrome presenter Mark Cousins introduction to late famed director Jonathan Demme’s 1974 exploitation pic Caged Heat. Readers can also read Cousins intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was October 25, 1998 (read here). Not much to argue with here except that while far from a masterpiece, Caged Heat still ranks for me as one of the better entries within the women in prison subgenre.

  1. I haven’t seen this film so I can’t say anything about it.
    John, did you watch the four hour version of Blood Ties? If so, any thoughts? Any favourite scenes?
    Also, I think you could post the je t’aime moi non plus review on Wednesday.

  2. I haven’t seen this film, but I am guessing the female prisoners spent a lot of time naked in the showers. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Not yet Steve, but I promise I will – I have been busy these past weeks while at the same time, spellchecking my review of Je t’aime moi non plus, which I will put up on my blog shortly 🙂

  4. I believe their were Pete – it has been a long time since I saw it and while by no means a great or even very good film, it was a good one and considering that director Jonathan Demme has always been politically aware in subtle ways, that is what makes it one of the more interesting ones. It has been a long time since I saw it though 🙂 Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
