About

Daily Plastic is a Chicago-based movie blog, a collaboration between Robert Davis and J. Robert Parks, the same pair who brought you the wearable movie tote, the razor-thin pencil pocket, and that joke about aardvarks. If you know the whereabouts of the blue Pontiac Tempest that was towed from the Plastic Parking Lot on the evening of August 7th, 2008, or more importantly if you've recovered the red shoebox that was in its trunk, please contact us at your earliest convenience.

Davis was the chief film critic for the late, great Paste Magazine (which lives on now as a website) from 2005 through 2009, and he counts this interview with Claire Denis among his favorite moments. Every once in a while he pops up on Twitter. He's presently sipping puerh in Chicago, even at this hour. Meanwhile, Parks, whose work has appeared in TimeOut Chicago, The Hyde Park Herald, and Paste, is molding unsuspecting, college-aged minds in the aforementioned windy city. Media types are warned to stay clear of his semester-sized field of influence because of the distorting effects that are likely to develop.

George Clooney in The American (Corbijn, 2010)

It sounds like the setting for a Samuel Beckett play, but it's actually the latest edition of the Plastic Podcast, wherein Robert Davis and J. Robert Parks talk about a recent George Clooney film and use that as an excuse to say a little something about Michelangelo Antonioni. Where they go from there is anyone's guess.

    BTW, my apologies for holding this episode in the queue for so long. We recorded it late last year and due to holidays and all, I'm just now getting around to pushing it out. I'm looking forward to getting the next few out the door.

    I can't speak for the rest of your legions of fans, but I forgive you. Keep 'em coming!

  3. Robert DAVIS says:

    Heh. Thanks, Andy.
