Jac Mac and Rad Boy Return to Night Flight!

One of the most popular animated short films that aired during Night Flight’s 80s heyday was Wes Archer’s cult fave Jac Mac & Rad Boy, Go!, a wonderfully frenetic cartoon about two party-bound teens who inadvertently destroy a city on their way to hell.

On a recent search through a “Short Films” special, we uncovered a perfect quality, beautifully preserved version of the wicked, brilliant clip.

Watch it tonight and read more on the blog!

OPTIMO

Liquid Liquid’s Hidden Video Gem

If Jac Mac is Side A for the weekend, Side B of our special “Short Films” episode holds a virtually unseen alternative video cut for Liquid Liquid’s track “Optimo” which features experimental animation from someone who goes by Maureen’s Life.

This is another one of those hidden gems that doesn’t appear to be on Youtube, Vimeo, etc… Great, great stuff. Enjoy!

EATING

Eating Raoul: A little comedy about murder & cannibalism in the world of L.A. swingers

Some movies are ahead of their time. Some movies are strictly of their time. Paul Bartel‘s 1982 cult classic Eating Raoul was both.

Eating Raoul debuted in theaters on March 24, 1982, and quickly became one of those movies you heard people on city streets talking about.

This week on the blog, our contributor Don Stradley takes a closer look at the film and its production. Read on!

PIXIES17

loudQUIETloud: A Film about the Pixies chronicles their tense & ultimately triumphant return

This essential Pixies film is now streaming in our music documentaries section over on Night Flight Plus.

It chronicles the Pixies’ 2004 sold-out reunion tour, which came more than ten years after their acrimonious split in 1992, offering up a deeply compelling portrait of the four band members and their tense and ultimately triumphant return.
