This week, we take a look back at the quick rise and even quicker fall of FilmDallas Pictures, which began its life as a Texas-based film investment company in 1983. After helping to produce two Oscar-winning films in 1984, they would take a leap of faith to become a film distribution company, only to be completely gone from the film industry by the end of 1988.
On this episode, we discuss Choose Me (1984, Alan Rudolph), Da (1988, Matt Clark), The Dirt Bike Kid (1985, Hoite Caston), Kiss of the Spider Woman (1985, Herbert Babenco), Man Facing Southeast (1986, Elisio Subiela), Night Zoo (1988, Jean-Claude Lauzon), Patti Rocks (1988, David Burton Morris), The Right-Hand Man (1987, Di Drew), Spike of Bensonhurst (1988, Paul Morrissey), Subway to the Stars (1988, Carlos Diegues), and The Trip to Bountiful (1985, Peter Masterson).
