Moviedrome Mondays: Talk Radio (1988)

I have posted a youtube video link below to Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox’s introduction to controversial film director Oliver Stone’s 1988 drama Talk Radio. Readers can also read Cox’s intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was May 22, 1994 (read here). Not much to add here except to say that I agree with Cox’s opinion here overall. Lead actor Eric Bogosian is electrifying as always. According to wikipedia, he is not only an actor, but a playwright, monologuist, novelist and historian. In other words, a quintuple threat. The always dynamic Michael Wincott also electrifies as a stoned heavy metal fan.
