    Episode 125 – A Woman Under the Influence

    Episode 125 – A Woman Under the Influence

    It’s taken 125 episodes and almost five years of doing the show, but I’m finally ready to talk about John Cassavetes’ A Woman Under the Influence (1974). This film puts me through the ringer in a way that no other film comes close to. Gena Rowlands’ high wire act as…

    Episode 124 – Dearest Sister

    Whom do you trust? Mattie Do’s Dearest Sister (2016) plays on our expectations of trust and seeks to upend them at every turn. Just as Ana may not be able to trust her failing vision that seems to bring with it visitations from ghosts, we may not be able to…

    Episode 123 – Daisies

    Episode 123 – Daisies

    Věra Chytilová’s Daisies (1966) has been called a lot of things – confrontational, subversive, empty-headed, wanton. The elusive nature of the film means you can call its protagonists, the Maries, a lot of things. Just don’t call them late for dinner. For what it’s worth, I call it magnificent. From…

    Episode 122 – A New Leaf

    In A New Leaf (1971), Elaine May’s screenwriting and directorial debut, I think you will see the legacy of her indelible comedy partnership with Mike Nichols even though they had disbanded the act ten years before. It is in the daft sensibility, the timing, and what seems to be overall…

    Episode 120 – Tarkan Versus the Vikings

    A few years back I was introduced to Mehmet Aslan’s Tarkan Versus the Vikings (1971) in the best way possible – at Fantastic Fest in an auditorium full of like minded genre film fans that were ready to have their minds blown. That is exactly what this movie did. The…

My Favorite Film Podcast

Being a teacher and a family man, I just don’t have time to listen to every film related podcast that I would like to. But this one gives me just enough to satisfy my cinephile podcast needs. I like the film selections and I enjoy the conversation between Cole and Ericca. Interesting and entertaining!

Well done!

Just discovered this podcast- though I can’t seem to subscribe in Apple podcasts. Missing “You Must Remember This”- found this well done podcast that centers on classic cinema- but such interesting choices! Began with one of my favorites”In a Lonely Place”-then “Rope” and I ‘m off! Good stuff- thanks.
