    Sundance 2022: Discussing "Speak No Evil" and Interview with Christian Tafdrup

    Sundance 2022: Discussing "Speak No Evil" and Interview with Christian Tafdrup

    One of the movies that stood out for me at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival was the Danish horror movie, "Speak No Evil." As you'll hear, though, I had a difficult time trying to figure out how best to discuss it for review. So, what I decided to do is give you my spoken thoughts on the movie- which will be well worth checking out when it comes to Shudder later in the year- and dovetailing those into my interview with director Christian Tafdrup. I hope you enjoy!

    Back in 2020, I joined friend Marv Dickey for a discussion of an obscure 1990s film he was going to build into a podcast. His show never took off, but he gave me permission to share our discussion on Steven Soderbergh's 1991 thriller, "Kafka," on the Sonic Cinema Podcast, I hope you enjoy!

A podcast for anyone aching for an education in cinema history

Brian is a virtual wellspring of film knowledge. He's informative and respectful, tackling films from classic to current, and discussing them from a personal POV that's refreshing but never argumentative. From interviews with filmmakers to reviews to retrospectives on directors' filmographies, Brian covers it all. Well worth a listen—and a subscription.
