I’m so glad these funny, passionate, young buffs are getting the featured slots and airtime they deserve. Really appreciate their discussion and take on the latest films. A must listen for millennial film-goers. Keep up the good work team!

Terrible Interviews

I perservered with this for a few months hoping it would get better but in the end and especially after the appalling interview with Claire Denis in the episode from 10 May 2019 I finally stopped listening and ended my subscription.
Some of the discussions of films were interesting and informative but all too often they tended toward smug metropolitan elitism and assumed a knowledge of art house film that very few outside of full time professional critics would have. I don't expect to be talked down to but equally I would like some background and insight on many of the films and directors under discussion. They also almost never talked even in passing about mainstream film and its impact and influence and vice versa on the more niche movie making under discussion here.
But in the end what drove me away where the dreadfully ill prepared and at times juvenile interviews with some of the great names of world cinema. I mentioned the particualrly bad interview with Claire Denis but it was by no means the first, another egregiously embarrsing and awful interview was the one with the genius that is Barry Jenkins - fawning, ignorant and incoherent, as with Ms Denis you could hearthe incredulity in Mr Jenkins' voice at the banality of the questions.
Listen and subscribe to BBC Radio 4's "The Film Programme" to see how it should be done and for a more rounded take on modern cinema as well as being royally entertained subscribe to "Kermode and Mayo's Film Review" from BBC Radio 5 Live.

Helps me pick what to watch!

With so many options at the cinema these days, my husband and I use this show as a helping hand in deciding what to watch. Love the interviews, Christina Lamb in particular. Think we’ll probably see A Private War rather than the King Arthur film, but maybe that’s one for when the grandchildren come round!
