    Interview With "King Richard" Editor, Pamela Martin

    Interview With "King Richard" Editor, Pamela Martin

    "King Richard" had its world premiere at last year's Telluride Film Festival, where it immediately struck up awards buzz for Will Smith's lead performance, the Beyoncé closing credits song "Be Alive," and other elements such as writing and editing, to help establish it as a contender in the Oscar race for Best Picture. Pamela Martin's editing has helped the film's success by keeping the 145-minute runtime moving and engaging, whether an audience member saw it in a theater or at home on HBO Max. She was kind enough to talk with us about her work, including the tennis matches, the closing montage which weaves in real-life footage of the Williams Sisters and their father, and more!

    Interview With "Flee" Editor, Janus Billeskov Jansen

    Interview With "Flee" Editor, Janus Billeskov Jansen

    Janus Billeskov Jansen has been the go-to editor in the Danish film industry, working with directors such as Thomas Vinterberg ("Another Round"), Nicolas Winding Refn ("Pusher II"), and Bille August ("Pelle The Conquerer"), but also working on acclaimed documentaries such as "The Act Of Killing" and "Strong Island." His most recent effort was on the 2021 Danish submission for Best International Feature, "Flee" (which is also contending for Best Documentary and Best Animated Feature Film). With NEON's acclaimed documentary releasing in more theaters this past week and continuing to expand, we wanted to revisit just what made this film so special, and through Jansen's work, we get a taste of that. Please take a listen down below and check here if theaters are currently showing the film in your area.

    Interview With "Candyman" Composer, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe

    Interview With "Candyman" Composer, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe

    Nia DaCosta's "Candyman" was released in the summer of 2021 to strong reviews for her direction, her handling of the film's themes, and the score by composer Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe. Robert was kind enough to spend some time talking with us about his haunting work on the film, which has been shortlisted for Best Original Score at this year's Academy Awards. If nominated, it would be one of the very rare times a horror movie has had its score nominated for an Oscar. You can take a listen to the discussion down below. Enjoy!

    Interview With "Being The Ricardos," "Dune" & "The Good Boss" Star, Javier Bardem

    Academy Award-winner Javier Bardem had a tremendous 2021, starring in one of the biggest blockbusters of the year with "Dune," playing Desi Arnaz in Aaron Sorkin's "Being The Ricardos," which he recently received a SAG Nomination for Best Actor from his peers and playing the lead in the Spanish submission for Best International Feature Film, "The Good Boss." Javier was kind enough to spend some time with us discussing all three roles, including his musical work as entertainer, Desi Arnaz, the differences between Spanish and American productions, where things are at regarding his role as Stilgar in the upcoming "Dune: Part Two," and more! We hope you enjoy our conversation, which you can listen to down below.

    Interview With "Parallel Mothers" Star, Penélope Cruz

    Interview With "Parallel Mothers" Star, Penélope Cruz

    Pedro Almodóvar's "Parallel Mothers" had its world premiere at last year's Venice Film Festival, where it won the Volpi Cup for Best Actress for the film's star, Academy Award-winner Penélope Cruz. She has since gone on to win other Best Actress prizes from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the National Society Of Film Critics. This is Cruz's seventh film with Almodóvar, and it's clear there's an inherent trust in their working relationship. Cruz was kind enough to spend some moments talking with us about her work on the film, her relationship with Almodóvar, her thoughts on her character, Janice, and what she plans to do next. Be sure to take a listen down below and enjoy!

    Interviews With "The Harder They Fall," Director, Writer & Composer, Jeymes Samuel & Costume Designer, Antoinette Messam

    Interviews With "The Harder They Fall," Director, Writer & Composer, Jeymes Samuel & Costume Designer, Antoinette Messam

    "The Harder They Fall" is a Black revisionist Western which has lit the world on fire and put Hollywood on notice with its all talented Black cast, genre-defying elements, and hip-hop-influenced soundtrack. Writer, director, and composer Jeymes Samuel was kind enough to chat with me about his inspiration for the project, how he chose to approach it compared to his music endeavors, and how his film is looking to reclaim the genre from Hollywood's long history of not giving Black voices their due. On top of that, Costume Designer Antoinette Messam spoke with Will Mavity about her work on the film, which seemed to blend the historic and the modern to present something vibrant and fresh for today's audience. We hope you enjoy it!

Appreciate but really lacks diversity

Long time listener, started with seven film podcasts and now only do NBP (outside of queer/BIPOC podcast that sometimes touch film).

I would really appreciate if there was more effort for diversifying opinion, especially women of color. It fills like the film industry is doing a lot to diversify and as a long time listener, NPB would finally begin to walk-the-walk and evolve a bit as well.

Good!

I enjoy the commentary, but I do agree with the reviews that say the show could use a little late diversity. I would really love to hear more from some non white women! It’s a good show though, I recommend it.

NBP crew

I love doing this exercise where I watch a movie sit with for a couple of hours form a review in my head and then read what NBP has to say about it and they never let me down. They’ll always highlight something I missed or just show me a different way of looking at it. Always trust in Matt!
