Great Host, Amazing Guests, Incredible Range of Films

In a sea of film-related content, SEMcast stands out. Great host – professional, funny, insightful and humane – amazing range of film industry guests, and films that range from ‘The Shining’, ‘Nights of Cabiria’ and ‘All About Eve’ to ‘Mortal Kombat’, ‘Batman Returns’ and ‘They Live’, you get your classics, your Oscar-bait, your art house, and your pop culture tent-poles. For a masterclass on how to politely agree to disagree, listen to the Sean Cisterna episode on ‘Life is Beautiful’. A truly class act!
