“Dangerous Men” Podcast Movie Review

Dangerous Men movie John S. Rad

Dangerous Men – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 71

“From now on, all trash like you is gonna end up dead.”

Daniel and Corky go to “shell” in a handbasket this week with their review of John S. Rad’s mind-boggling Dangerous Men.  Recorded live from a beach-accessible Bodega Bay biker bar, the hosts struggle to make any sense of this WTF classic.

Over 20 years in the making, Dangerous Men is wildly inept in a manner so unique that it’s almost visionary.  Director-writer-editor-cinematographer-composer Rad displays incompetence in one medium after another, yet his magnum opus remains a strangely fascinating watch.

While hunting for Black Pepper’s house, Daniel and Corky discuss buttcrack knives, Hard Rock Cafe baseball jerseys, and inexplicable belly-dancing.

This week’s darer: Jaina Sinclair

Why did Jaina Sinclair dare Daniel and Corky to watch Dangerous Men? Dangerous Men is undoubtedly the most confusing, nonsensical, meandering, plotless movie I have ever seen. At no point do fancy film terms like “narrative” or “cohesion” enter this movie’s dictionary, and now you have to watch it. I’m sorry to drag you into this, Corky. Suffer well, gentlemen.”

IMDB synopsis: “After her fiancé is killed and she is almost sexually assaulted, a woman becomes an avenger of the night seeking to kill all dangerous men who would harm women. Meanwhile, her fiancé’s cop brother also seeks to bring down the biker gang associated with the murder.”
