Filmmaker and flim flam man, Onur Tukel returns to the podcast for his 8th visit! This makes Onur the most frequent guest on the show and certainly one of the most welcome. Helping me celebrate 400 shows, Onur discusses the making of his latest comedy, Catfight, which stars Anne Heche & Sandra Oh. The film, like most of his others, including: Richard’s Wedding, Summer of Blood, and Applesauce, is available for streaming on iTunes. But that barely scratches the surface. Onur and I also discuss love, sex, politics, censorship and much more. And we have a couple of guest cameos by Ariel Kavoussi (who also appears in Catfight) as well as actor Matt Hopkins. And if that weren’t enough —and after two hours you very well might think it is— the episode is capped off by an original song composed & performed by Onur to honor this auspicious 400th Episode of Filmwax Radio.
