Process, Passion, and this is a terrible heading for a review.

If you love discussions of process, this is for you.

I also really appreciate this podcast for taking their subjects seriously, digging deep into technique and subtext, while being unselfconsciously excited about filmmaking.

There are so many shows that talk about what they hate, it’s cool to hear people talk about what they love.

Yes! Women are allowed to love genre movies!

Oh my godddd, as a lady who loves movies that don't always love me back, it's fantastic to hear women both gush and honestly discuss issue with the genres that are close to my heart, noir, crime, horror, sci-fi. Also fantastic to hear unapologetic, unblushing, unembarassed discussions of these genres that are assigned the label of 'not serious' though they often allegorically or otherwise deal more honestly with societal problems, and offer main roles (though not always flattering ones) to women or marginalized people than many so-called 'serious' movies. Plus it gives me such a great movie list to tackle, and I know that they have been vetted by people whose opinions to trust. And April is an AMAZING interviewer. Switchblade Sister 4-eva!

Inspiring and Informative!

April is a GREAT interviewer, and I'm always adding things to my watchlist. I'm trying to watch more films by female filmmakers, and this is a great resource.
