    Waltz with Bashir

    Waltz with Bashir

    In which our fellas head back to Lebanon this time without the steel armour. Ari Folman was there in 1982 as a young man in the Israeli Defense Forces. His memories are fragmented, however sometimes crystal clear, others bits and pieces and some blank altogether. He knows he was present at the infamous Sabra and Shatila massacre but he remembers only a few images. Through conversations with memory experts and wartime comrades, rendered in a distinct animated style, Ari begins to reveal a bigger picture of what he experienced in those years.

    Next week: the final days of a monster.

America's favourite gameshow commences with a discussion of Robert Bresson's A Man Escaped.

    Watchalong: Dune (1984)

    Watchalong: Dune (1984)

    A podcast is a very delicate thing. Now then, know that it is the year 2024. This one, hosted by Brendan and Jason - the Fathers of Podcasting - is in tumult! Brendan, in search of the universe’s most valuable commodity - Sam Adams - descends upon Boston, a vile hive of scum and villainy. Ergo, this week, instead, the listener will be taken on a watch-a-long Voyage… to a special corner of the galaxy... circa 1984. The director is David Lynch. The planet is Arrakis, also known as...

    DUNE

    Next week: we're escaping from prison again... en francais!

    Ashes and Diamonds

    Ashes and Diamonds

    We talked about Kanal so why not talk about another Wajda War™ film - Ashes and Diamonds. While this one focuses less on war itself and more of the implications of post-war and one's own morality, this is our podcast so don't tell us what to do, MOM!!!

    Ahem.

    Anyhoo, the fellas chat it up about this film and discuss the scene with very realistic (if not real?) drunk acting, the stark imagery particularly with religious symbols, the massive changes between this and the propagandistic source material, the Polish James Dean and much more.

    Next week: kill! kill! kill!

stay for the incredible impressions at the beginning of the episode

brendan and jason manage to be knowledgeable without ever coming off as pretentious, and their discussions always have the right balance of humor and facts. definitely one of, if not my favorite, movie podcasts out there!

Stay on topic

The substance of the film talk is solid but, unfortunately, some of the banter is an appallingly unfunny mixture of sexist, homophobic, and occasionally racist humor. I’d hoped to stick around for more since the podcast features a lot of great films. Good luck guys, come back when you graduate high school.

For Screen and Country

I enjoy the podcasts but the swearing isn’t necessary. The start of the Lavendar Hill Mob was ridiculous. The Ipcress File was entertaining.
