    NOLAN WEEK: Encore Podcast - Episode 313 - Confidence, Misdirection, and Nolan’s Neo Noir Bona Fides

    With Nolan’s vision of Gotham City in our rearview, we’re now flashing back to the beginning of the auteur’s cinematic journey.
    We’ll scrutinize his dexterity with the daylight noir, his interest in self-victimizing sleuths, and his fascination with prestidigitation.

    NOLAN WEEK: Encore Podcast - Episode 311 - The DARK KNIGHT Trilogy and the Battle for the Soul of a City

    You know them, you’ve seen them, and you certainly have opinions about them.
    Join us as we revisit three of the most successful, influential, and subversively political films of the 21st century- courtesy of a man who insisted that he had absolutely no political agenda in mind when he made them.
    We’ll [attempt to] get to the bottom of this thematic paradox…

    - BATMAN BEGINS (2005)
    - THE DARK KNIGHT (2008)
    - THE DARK KNIGHT RISES (2012)

    NOLAN WEEK: Encore Podcast - Episode 310 - "A Keynote Introduction to our CHRISTOPHER NOLAN Series"

    As we traverse the last few miles in the marathon that will end at the 96th Academy Awards, it has become clear that “foregone conclusion” is the proper term to describe this year’s Best Director race. We here at WE LIKE MOVIES could not be happier with this inevitability as we look forward to no longer living in a world in which Christopher Nolan has zero Oscars.

    In honor of the occasion, we have decided to revisit our recent Oeuvre series about Mr. Nolan. For the next few days, leading up to Sunday’s Oscar Ceremony, we will be posting “encore presentations” of all episodes of the Nolan series, culminating in a brand new BONUS EPISODE celebrating the only film not covered in our original countdown: Best Picture frontrunner OPPENHEIMER.We begin with the rare “solo pod,” in which Matt inaugurates the series with a narratology lecture about Nolan’s unique storytelling acumen.

    Follow us this week for podcasts about all twelve of the director’s films, spanning his quarter-century career.
