S01E03: Dead Poet’s Society

November 1st, 2020 No comments

Ethan and Talia discuss Peter Weir’s 1989 Dead Poet’s Society. How director Peter Weir captured the natural interactions of schoolboys; we realise that a large number of our favourite films feature Ethan Hawke; and how this film caused Ethan to spend months in India at the age of eighteen.

November 1st, 2020 No comments

Ethan and Talia discuss Richard Linklater’s Before Trilogy: Before Sunrise (1995), Before Sunset (2004) and Before Midnight (2013).

links to things discussed in this episode
• Guardian article which mentions that Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy were not credited for the screenplay for the first film as well as other interesting details

S01E01: Lost in Translation

August 20th, 2019 No comments

Ethan and Talia discuss Sofia Coppola’s 2003 Lost in Translation. How in our history of rewatching this film our empathy has changed from Scarlett Johansson to Bill Murray; how the use of the Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine and Air on the soundtrack elevated this to something above great; and seeing glimpses of the real awe-struck relationship between the young Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray.

links to things discussed in this episode
• When discussing if Bill Murray might worry he was too old for the role, comparison to Jimmy Stewart in Vertigo – the commercial failure of which Hitchcock blamed of his aged appearance 
• Comparing end to last scene in Casablanca
• The work of art that Talia though the first scene of the film is homage to is Jutta by John Kacere
• David Brooks – Was the Nuclear Family a Mistake 
• Comparison to marriage as portrayed in Sam Mendes’ Revolutionary Road
