    Episode 162 - John Cassavetes Retrospective

    Episode 162 - John Cassavetes Retrospective

    Yo!
    Today we're doing a retrospective on John Cassavetes, arguably the father of American Independent Filmmaking. More specifically we're looking at the five of his films that made it into the Criterion Collection and discuss his style, direction, technique and the progression of them.
    A fun episode! I had a lot of fun researching Cassavetes despite the fact that his movies were a lot of work to watch.
    Hope you enjoy the episode.
    Cheers!

    Episode 161 - Turbo Kid

    Episode 161 - Turbo Kid

    Yo!

    We're Talking Turbo Kid! Directed by a very talented Trio:  Anouk Whissell, François Simard, Yoann-Karl Whissell whose names I definitely butchered in the episode (apologies)

    A fun movie that invites cheekiness and celebratory parody to the 80s nostalgia trend we've been noticing as of late. Truly fun filmmaking.

    Synopsis:

    In a post-apocalyptic wasteland, an orphaned teen (Munro Chambers) must battle a ruthless warlord (Michael Ironside) to save the girl (Laurence Leboeuf) of his dreams.

    Episode 160 - Blue Velvet

    Episode 160 - Blue Velvet

    Yo!
    Today we're talking about Blue Velvet, In our opinion, David Lynch's most accessible film that still manages to capture that Lynchian spirituality of cinema that eludes a lot of the satisfying explanations that film critics want while talking about his work.
    It's exciting and if you haven't watched any of Lynch's work before, a brilliant place to start.
    Hope you enjoy the episode!
    Cheers!

    Episode 159 - Good Time

    Episode 159 - Good Time

    Yo!
    Today we're talking about Good Time! The Robert Pattinson Movie directed by the Safdie brothers. A great entry into the crime thriller genre with the grime and filth needed to create a strong sense of identity for itself.
    Cheers!
    Hope you enjoy the episode!

    Episode 158 - Blue Valentine

    Episode 158 - Blue Valentine

    Yo!
    Today we talk Blue Valentine directed by Derek Cianfrance. A fascinating relationship study that's worthy of how uncomfortable it can be to watch.
    Hope you like the episode!
    Also! We're on Spotify now, if that's your preferred app, feel free to holler at us there 3
    Cheers!

    Episode 157 - Polar

    Episode 157 - Polar

    So, you know that one little weird release with Mads Mikkelsen and Vanessa Hudgens that popped up on Netflix a couple weeks ago. We watched it and now we're talking about it.
    We're talking about Polar!
    A fun and stylized take on translating a graphic novel into the film format.
