Oh, M. Night Shyamalan. A writer/director whose early films seemed like the work of an auteur genius. But then? Well, we talk about it on this week’s podcast.
This week’s discussion takes us to China, and Zhang Yimou’s “Raise the Red Lantern.” We also cover feminism and women directors in film.
This week we tackle Wes Anderson’s only animated film. Enjoy!
The film so controversial it was banned in our home state: Max and I take it on.
This week we discuss Nicholas Roeg’s horrific 1973 masterpiece, “Don’t Look Now.”
Oui oui, this is our first French film, Francois Truffaut’s “The Last Metro.” Don’t be intimidated by its foreignness. We spend the first ten minutes of the episode introducing the ideas of the “French new-wave” and giving reasons why you should see it if you haven’t.
