Alright El Moochadores, check out episode #3 of Bookies, a podcast produced by our Brethren Moo, Ser Brandon Noel. Bookies is a book review podcast (and I do love me some books… in a normal book loving way. Get your head out of the gutter…) and this week they’re a review’n Don’t Point That Thing At Me, by Kyril Bonfiglioli. Which, I just learned, was turned into a movie starring Johnny Depp. Groovy. Check out the podcast below along with the official synopsis. Also, try clicking the link above to check out some of Brandon’s comics.
The deliciously nasty, highly entertaining, comic masterpiece of a thriller-a cult favorite of Stephen Fry and Julian Barnes. A cult classic in the UK since its first publication there in the 1970s, Don’t Point that Thing at Me is the hilarious and dark humored crime thriller featuring the Honorable Charlie Mortdecai: degenerate aristocrat, amoral art dealer, seasoned epicurean, unwilling assassin, and general knave-about-Piccadilly. With his thuggish manservant Jock, Mortdecai endures all manner of nastiness involving secret police, angry foreign governments, stolen paintings, and dead clients, all just to make a dishonest living—while decked out in the most stylish garb and drinking the most bizarre alcoholic cocktails. Don’t miss the brilliant mixture of comedy, crime, and suspense.
