Alcohol Professor: The Spirit of Dublin

In the whole of Ireland, there’s only one working distillery open to the public (Bushmills is technically in another country): the Teeling Distillery. In The Spirit of Dublin, I sit down with distillery co-founder Stephen Teeling to discuss his family history, the state of Irish whiskey, and the complicated process of building a distillery that is open tot he public in a country that has no guidelines for such a thing.

Alcohol Professor: The Irish Whiskey Trail

My trip to Ireland wasn’t all stone circles and eldritch pacts with ancient forces. I followed the Irish Whiskey Trail to visit the country’s distilleries – only to discover that you can actually visit the distilleries. But there are lovely museums.

Revolver

Testi plays Milo, a small-time hood who, when the film opens is lugging his wounded buddy through a field after a heist that has apparently gone rather poorly. His friend dies, and Testi buries him in the field before getting arrested and ending up in a jail run by Oliver Reed’s Vito Cipriani.

The Erotic Escapades of Emmanuelle, Pt.2: Teddy Girls in Love

Born in the Dutch town of Utrecht in September of 1952, Sylvia Kristel grew up the daughter of hoteliers. Living in a hotel provided her with, if not exactly a conventional childhood, certainly an interesting one, as the rotating cast of oddball characters that inevitably show up at a hotel, both as guests and staff, provided a sometimes surreal background for Sylvia and her two siblings.

Marketa Lazarová

Marketa Lazarová is the story of two rival clans: the primitive Pagan raiders the Kozlíks, lorded over by a brutal patriarch; and the slightly more civilized Lazars who, while unwilling to participate in the bloody raids perpetrated by the Kozlíks, is more than happy to scavenge for anything he might think could be of value.
