    #70: Chernobyl

    Everybody’s talking about it. It’s episode 70 and the boys tackle the now infamous mini-series Chernobyl. The sheer horribleness of it all and the exquisite craftsmanship; the study of the human spirit, the suppressive ideology and rich history of the USSR. Vodka and blood. Na zdorov'ye!

    Finally, it’s the Ozu episode. The boys hit the Tatami mat and tackle his 1953 masterpiece: Tokyo Story. Is it the right film to watch on week 40 of your pregnancy?

Great podcast!

This is a great film podcast. It is an intelligent and entertaining show. They review both Hollywood movies as well as European/Scandinavian movies. I really like the pace which leaves room for in debt analysis and, at times, philosophical discussions. The tone of the show is unpretentious and casual, and the chemistry between the hosts is great. Give it a try.
