S01E12: Frances Ha

November 3rd, 2020 No comments

Ethan and Talia discuss Noah Baumbach’s 2012 film Frances Ha. Is our love of this film all down to the charm of Greta Gerwig? Our delight in the fervour and silliness of 20s female friendship; and the great depiction of how holidays can be truly awful…

S01E11: Point Break

November 3rd, 2020 No comments

Ethan and Talia discuss Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 film Point Break. On how Keanu Reeves’ acting is an eternal, mysterious pleasure; the ambiguity over whether this is a good bad film or a good good film; and how Ethan’s love of this film has lead to him remaking a no-budget version in his friend’s back garden.

• Not sure that there exists evidence of Ethan’s claim that wearing president masks during a bank robbery was based on a real life case but here’s a more recent version
Not direct evidence that Patrick Swazye was like Bodhi but I think it helps
• A Rolling Stone article about Point Break that mentions how Katherine Bigelow fought to cast Keanu in the movie… also lots about the female gaze
Malcolm Gladwell’s theory about why we misunderstand strangers (a theory which Talia believes could validate Keanu’s acting style)

S01E10: Magic Mike XXL

November 2nd, 2020 No comments

Ethan and Talia discuss Gregory Jacobs’s 2015 film Magic Mike XXL. How the pleasures of this film are largely down to the up-to-the-minute depiction of male friendships; on Andie McDowell’s finest acting hour; and whether the flood or articles labelling Magic Mike the feminist film of the year are justified.

S01E09: 2001: A Space Odyssey

November 2nd, 2020 No comments

Ethan and Talia discuss Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey. On how your companions when watching a film greatly affect your viewing experience (spoiler: Talia doesn’t like this film, and even found articles for the show notes to back up her opinion); how a reading of Arthur C Clarke’s novel enhanced Ethan’s love of the film; and thoughts about whether LSD improves your enjoyment of the film.
