James Toback joins The B-Movies Podcast
to talk about his latest pseudo-documentary Seduced and Abandoned
, starring himself and Alec Baldwin as they try to secure financing for a Last Tango in Paris remake at the Cannes Film Festival. The film features interviews with filmmakers Martin Scorsese, Bernardo Bertolucci and Francis Ford Coppola, and actors Ryan Gosling, Jessica Chastain and Berenice Bejo about their experiences at Cannes and ongoing struggles to produce films in an industry that sometimes doesn't seem very interested. It's an in-depth look at the contemporary entertainment industry... just don't call it a documentary.
Why? That's one of the questions James Toback answers in this special bonus episode of The B-Movies Podcast, in which William "Bibbs" Bibbiani sits the writer/director down by the pool at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA to talk about the state of the filmmaking market, the revelations in Seduced and Abandoned and Toback's many anecdotes about the early careers of superstars like Robert De Niro and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Seduced and Abanoned premieres on HBO on October 28, 2013, after which you can find it on HBO Go. Follow William Bibbiani on Twitter at @WilliamBibbiani and don't forget to subscribe to and review The B-Movies Podcast on iTunes. (That's how we know you care.)

No, seriously, don't listen to this podcast. William "Bibbs" Bibbiani, Professor Witney Seibold and Ryan Turek from Shock Till You Drop are counting down the most repugnant gross-out horror movies they have ever seen, and... yeesh. They've seen some shit, folks. We wouldn't wish some of these titles on our worst enemies. These are gross-out horror movies of the highest, sickest caliber. This, ladies and gentlemen, is a B-Movies Podcast of darkness.
BUT... if you can make it through their twisted gross-out horror movies list (or if you skip ahead to 1:00:57), they're also reviewing the week's biggest new releases, including the remake of Carrie
, the Julian Assange biopic The Fifth Estate
, the Oscar-contender 12 Years a Slave
, Sylvester Stallone's and Arnold Schwarzenegger's first co-starring film Escape Plan
, Vincenzo Natali's puzzle box supernatural thriller Haunter
, the Daniel Radcliffe beat poet drama Kill Your Darlings
, and the SyFy Movie on steroids Big Ass Spider!
