    Check in to The Grand Budapest Hotel

    Check in to The Grand Budapest Hotel

    This week on The Pod Charles Cinecast, presented by The Prince Charles Cinema, our hosts Jonathan Foster and Fil Freitas venture to a parallel 1930s timeline to the fictional land of Zubrowka and check into Wes Anderson's 8th Feature THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL!
    Ralph Fiennes stars as the quirky concierge Gustave H., who takes on newcomer Tony Revolori as Zero Mustafa to be his protégé, and finds himself as the suspect in the murder of his longtime hotel guest and lover Madame D, portrayed by Tilda Swinton in a ton of makeup. Add in a bunch of Wes Anderson regulars filling out the cast as glorified cameos; a mix of stop-motion, miniatures, and live action; centrally framed shots; changing aspect ratios; and some intricate set design and costumes, this may be the most twee Wes Anderson film of all-time.
    Tune in to see if it makes the grade with our hosts and stick around for our final Anderson vs Anderson rankings and a UK Criterion Blu-ray Contest!

    Munchausen Syndrome by Phantom Thread

    Munchausen Syndrome by Phantom Thread

    This week on The Pod Charles Cinecast, presented by The Prince Charles Cinema, our hosts Jonathan Foster and Fil Freitas travel back to the haute couture world of 1950's London and see about a renowned dressmaker, who takes his work a little too seriously in Paul Thomas Anderson's 8th feature PHANTOM THREAD!
    Starring Daniel Day-Lewis in his swan song performance and the woman of a thousand faces Vickey Krieps, Phantom Thread is Paul Thomas Anderson's low-key quintessential rom-com. The film is full of scathing one-liners, dished out in cold-blooded savagery that nearly makes its literal dishes of poisonous mushrooms seem palatable.
    Tune in to see what our hosts think of this final entry from PTA in our current arc of Anderson vs Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis's final performance of his storied career...

    Incoherent Vice

    This week on The Pod Charles Cinecast, presented by The Prince Charles Cinema, our hosts Jonathan Foster and Fil Freitas find themselves in a hazy daze in 1970s California, as they try to solve the ultimate mystery – What in the hell is going on in Paul Thomas Anderson's 7th feature?
    Of course, we are talking about PTA's 2014 neo-noir crime comedy INHERENT VICE, starring Joaquin Phoenix, Katherine Waterston, Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon and Owen Wilson (a bonafide Anderson vs Anderson crossover) and based on the Thomas Pynchon novel of the same name.
    Tune in for one of our most interest snack times yet and to hear these two bumbling fools try to make heads or tails of this confusing movie...

    Fantastic Mr. Fox moves to the Isle of Dogs

    Fantastic Mr. Fox moves to the Isle of Dogs

    This week on The Pod Charles Cinecast, presented by The Prince Charles Cinema, our hosts Jonathan Foster and Fil Freitas get animated as they take on both of Wes Anderson's stop-motion films in one double-header extravaganza, for Week 11 of our Anderson vs Anderson arc!
    First up, the pair travel from the pages of the popular children's novel to the big screen with 2009's FANTASTIC MR. FOX, starring George Clooney, Meryl Streep, and Bill Murray. Then, Jon and Fil find themselves in Japan, where cats rule and dogs drool, in 2018's ISLE OF DOGS, starring an all-star cast led by Koyu Rankin, Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton, Bob Balaban, Liev Schreiber, Greta Gerwig and Tilda Swinton.
    How does Wes Anderson's style translate to animated features? Which of these two films will win over the hosts? And, will they both be enough to overcome Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, as we rank the two directors' films thus far? Tune in to find out...

Film Gratia Filmis

I’ve just discovered this little gem of a podcast and have moved it straight on to my Stay Up To Date list.

The two hour The Room special just flew by and felt very personal as to date it’s the only film I’ve seen at the cinema (twice)

I look forward to finally catching up and maybe getting one of those memberships they occasionally mention...
