Australian filmmaker Baz Luhrmann counts as an acquired taste when it comes to cinema. To his fans, few directors can match his lavish showmanship that bleeds through every frame and pixel of his loud movies. For others, he represents gaudy excessiveness and the complete sensory overload that comes with it. The Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, are joined again by a special guest help sift through all the glitz and glitter.

For their 75th episode, our two hip-swinging film critics, sequined dads, and non-singing school teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan welcome back guest Cati Glidewell of The Blonde in Front for another guest spot. On this episode, the trio show their bedazzled adoration for summer hit Elvis. We compare our tolerances and delights for The King, filmmaker Baz Luhrmann, the discovery of Austin Butler, and whatever character Tom Hanks was trying on. Come for the shared challenge and tirade and stay for the mutual love and respect for the fun movies encapsulate.
