Ep. #45-Xanadu



On this week’s episode, we tackle another ’80’s cult oddity: Robert Greenwald’s XANADU, a roller skating disco musical from 1980 that arrived about a year after disco officially died and is shockingly short on singing. But it sure has roller skating. So much roller skating. And Gene Kelly in what is arguably the most embarrassing swan song in film history. At least Olivia Newton-John is on hand as a neon-emitting Greek muse who pretty much crushes everyone’s dreams. Yeah, this is a confused film. So, naturally, co-host Luke loved it. He should be ashamed.
