Podcast: Pain and Glory + Hail Satan?
Penny Lane’s film Hail Satan? May not be as demonic as the title suggests. It’s a documentary about the satanists steadfastly working to preserve the separation of church and state. In three years their members rose from just three, to over 100,000, including by the end, the film’s director.
Director Salvador Mallo (played by Antonio Banderas) is called to revisit one of his early career triumphs. But the new restoration of his film also revives his connection with estranged friends, and shakes loose old memories. The film moves back and forth between recollections of his mother (played by Penélope Cruz), his early sexual awakening and his current, heroin lined state of listlessness
Discussing the film this week are Sam Howlett, Jake Cunningham and Steph Watts
