    451. Directorpiece Theatre: The Sublime and Subliminal Josie and the Pussycats

    451. Directorpiece Theatre: The Sublime and Subliminal Josie and the Pussycats

    Josie and the Pussycats can be seen as a vapid, mind-numbing waste of the senses. Someone else might see it as a satire of cultural propaganda and a decrying of the entertainment industry as a whole. Both have validity and while Abe and Adam disagree on this movie they do agree it has its charm and there’s more to this than meets the eye. Just like me, the description writer.

    449. Frame Rate: Gattaca (Feat. Sarah Griffith)

    449. Frame Rate: Gattaca (Feat. Sarah Griffith)

    It is the near-future and genetic manipulation has polarized the rich/poor gap to an even more extreme extent. Michael and Abe along with Small Bean Sarah Griffith take a look at the prescient social commentary in this 1997 sci-fi starring Ethan Hawke, Jude Law, and Uma Thurman. Also Dean Norris. Michael reminds us that we cannot forget Dean Norris, the star of Gattaca!

    448. Shooting Threes: The Matrix Revolutions

    448. Shooting Threes: The Matrix Revolutions

    In this episode, Bridgett and Sarah discuss the Matrix “trilogy’s” third film. Completing the “trilogy,” the hosts point out what did and did not work for them. If you recall, we start the film with Neo using his Matrix Magic in the real world and covers the final battle between man and machine. Much like the film, the hosts must engage in their own battle. The Battle of “Does it hold up?”

Love it

Especially love coen brothers brothers. Listened to every episode twice, great insights and conversation

Your (not so) Evil Twin ,

Favourite Film Podcast

Criminally underrated show. Frame Rate and Coen Brothers Brothers are musts. The way Michael and Abe insightfully look at the production and meanings of films honestly helps me find new enjoyment from classics. They are also responsible for putting me on to great movies I would have never considered before.
Particular recent favourites: “A Serious Man” and “Annihilation”.

Much love from Australia, check these guys out.
