Highly recommended for film fans

This has been a great find. In each episode Sam the host interviews a guest about a film the guest has nominated to be part of the hypothetical 90 minutes or less film festival. Sam is a brilliant interviewer, and the guests are always interesting and intelligent. Cue high-quality, entertaining discussion about a range of films, some I’d heard of and others I enjoyed being introduced to.

Too much waffle from guests

Love the concept and the fact that the podcasts are short at around half an hour but the episodes I’ve listened to so far have spent a third or more of the run time bugging up up guests themselves. Now I don’t mind a bit of quid pro quo with them sharing their contact details and what they’re currently working on but this feels too much. I’ll try a few more episodes but if this continues I’m afraid I’m out. I listened to Stand By Me episode last night and honestly fell asleep before talk of the actual film started. Wi happily revise review if this major issue solved. Thanks for a neat concept though.

Thoroughly enjoyed!

What a treat to hear two film aficionados shine a much deserved spotlight on Parsley Days: a hidden Canadian indi gem that doesn't get enough credit! So many great points about the film's original style and bold filmmaking are explored; I'll definitely be watching it again this weekend.
