Interview: Soft Riot’s Jack Duckworth Keeps His Chin Up

“Jack Duckworth is a synth-driven journeyman who has delivered leftfield sounds across multiple projects over the past 25 years. For the past decade, he’s developed a sizeable, sinewave-forward solo catalogue as Soft Riot.”

The Tower

12 February 2021

A double-entry for the Canadian (1985) and American (1993) versions of the The Tower, both made-for-TV movies involving powerful, master computers in state-of-the-art (for the time) office buildings that go bezerk and start killing people! Both films are of dubious quality but provide a certain entertainment value. This entry is a bit of a contrast and comparison between the two and delves a bit into aesthetics, Canadian film and the little known genre of Canuxploitation.
