Artist, podcaster, and Sylvester Stallone-iphile Lea Devon Sorrentino joins Chris and Courtney for a Wesley Snipes Double Feature. Sorrentino is the creator of the podcast Lea and the Internet, which explores the way that the internet effects culture, the arts, community...well, everything. Lea is also a conceptual artist and video creator. Her artistic talents are various and sundry and we were lucky to get her to lend them for an hour to Double Exposure. She has come to talk about Wesley Snipes.
Way back in the late 1980s, early 1990s--we're talking two decades before going to prison for tax evasion--Wesley Snipes could do it all. He could do comedy, he could do action; he could slay vampires, he could steal bases AND out-jump Woody Harrelson.
For some reason, though, a paltry 3-year stint in the clink has deluminated the light of this former star. This week, Double Exposure returns to the Welsey Snipes glory days to revisit two of his most memorable films: To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar and Demolition Man.
