    #95 - Sand Storm w/ Moïra Ghazal

    #95 - Sand Storm w/ Moïra Ghazal

    Choosing 'Sand Storm' as the movie for this episode, Moïra hoped to offer insight into Middle Eastern culture, and in doing so, whipped us both into a sandstorm of emotion as we talked about this tragic tale of patriarchal oppression in Bedouin Israel.

    #94 - Brain On Fire w/ Jason R. Gray

    #94 - Brain On Fire w/ Jason R. Gray

    It's not often that I get the chance to talk with someone who's been through the kind of drama worthy of a movie. Jason R. Gray returned to the show to talk about medical drama Brain on Fire, and what happened this year when his own brain set "on fire."

    It was a pleasure and an honor to talk to Jason about what it was like to watch a movie that so closely paralleled his own terrifying and alienating illness, and how far he's come on the road to recovery.

    #93 - What We Do In The Shadows w/ Caroline Diezyn

    It's a Caroline episode. That's all you need to know to know it's good. And we talked about one of their all-time favourite movies, What We Do in the Shadows.

    We talked about vampires (duh), Nazis (huh?), and what werewolves can teach us about toxic masculinity.

    #92 - Bo Burnham: Make Happy w/ Kevin Avram

    #92 - Bo Burnham: Make Happy w/ Kevin Avram

    Our guest this episode is comedian and writer Kevin Avram (Twitter), talking about one of the most unique stand-up specials you've ever seen - Bo Burnham: Make Happy.

    Dylan and Kevin talked about what it means to make art; what it means to perform, both professionally and in our day-to-day lives; and had two very different reactions coming away from Bo Burnham's most painfully honest observations.

    #91 - A Ghost Story w/ Jeremy Hobbs

    #91 - A Ghost Story w/ Jeremy Hobbs

    Jeremy Hobbs is back to talk about one of the most unexpectedly affecting movies we've tackled in a long time. A Ghost Story follows a man who, following an accident, finds himself haunting the home he shared with his wife. It can be a challenge to break into, but ultimately, it's an arresting story about grief, loss, and love.

    Very special thanks to Shilo Pawley for providing her cover of Dark Rooms' "I Get Overwhelmed" for this episode.

Amazing Conversations

Dylan is a very knowledgeable and eloquent film critic but the real strength of this podcast, I think, lies in his ability to draw interesting conversations about everything from gay alliance to the failed futures of scifi to the beauty of film stock out of a vast range guests. These conversations are relaxed, intelligent, and entertaining. It's like sitting on a couch with some of your most knowledgeable friends - the cool ones, the cool-but-nerdy ones - and just talking about films you've watched for an hour.

Look, this podcast is great.

Look, this podcast is great. At first I thought the best episodes were the ones where Dylan & Co would go way too deep into some dumb artifact of the 1980s or 1990s, tearing it apart with wit and love. Then I decided the best ones were the ones where Dylan & Co (usually the adamantine Caroline Diezyn) had brilliant things to say about an intelligent recent movie involving robots. But now I pretty much dig them all. "Movies that happen to be on Canadian Netflix" still seems like a slender reed on which to hang a podcast, but they always have smart, searching, funny conversations, and the barely-there premise means that every episode ends up being something different and cool.

Also I guess something happened to their iTunes account so they lost all their stars and reviews, which makes them look like they're just getting started, but they're not - they've been at it for ages, with a back catalog of like 60 great episodes. You don't need to go back to the beginning, you don't need to listen in order. Just grab one that looks good and jump in.

Brilliant insights and discussion

You don't need to be a Canadian or even a Netflix customer to appreciate the NetFlakes Podcast. Dylan and his guests bring fresh insight and perspective to a broad spectrum of films. I've discovered some great movies I might have skipped without this show, and gained new appreciation for old favourites. Without a doubt, this is the best source of independent movie reviews and discussion on iTunes.
