Ep. 154 – Women of the Night

This week we’re watching a morality play about the perils of taking up that most ancient of professions: giving someone advice and then immediately doing the thing you told them not to do. Oh, and prostitution. Join us for Women of the Night.

Ep. 153 – Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown

What more do you need than a title for this one? It’s a tale old as time. A man cheats on his girlfriend while his ex-wife seeks his death. Oh, and there are unwitting terrorist accomplices and phone repairmen. So I guess you do need a little more than the title…we’re watching Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.

Ep. 152 – Sweetie

The force of prophecy is strong in this movie, all beginning with tale of a man with a question mark on his head. Who would think such a simple beginning could lead us on such a scattered path? Because that’s what we’re in for with Jane Campion’s Sweetie.

Ep. 96 – The Breakfast Club (Repost)

A day late and a dollar short. It’s been a hectic week here at the Correction, so we asked Ed what his favorite old episode is and he picked The Breakfast Club. Clearly he’s maintaining his trolling ways, as our impression might not have been the most…rosy.

Ep. 151 – Cleo from 5 to 7

It seems like we’re always waiting for something. In this case, Cleo is waiting anxiously for the results of her medical examination. As she maneuvers throughout the busy streets of Paris, what will she make of the meaning of her life? This week we follow Cleo from 5 to 7.

Ep. 150 – Cameraperson

For our 150th episode, we’re going a bit meta and looking at the person behind the camera lens…by looking…through the camera lens. That’s right, we’re diving into a documentary with Kirsten Johnson’s Cameraperson.

Ep. 149 – Hour of the Wolf

Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Does the hour right before dawn truly seem to be the darkest? If that’s the case, then we strongly suggest you don’t take up the invitation of your weird neighbors to go to an old castle for awkward dinner conversation. Your relationship might not be the same ever again.

Ep. 148 – Akira

Come with me and you’ll see a whole neo-Tokyo full of imagination. Then you’ll see that Tetsuo is causing devastation. Kaneda is chasing him with a laser. Bikes are blowing by like they’ve never been unsafer.

That’s right, we’re thinking Laserdisc and we’re watching Akira.

Ep. 147 – Graduation

What is worth the cost of your integrity? Your child’s future? That’s the dilemma we’ll grapple with in today’s film, Graduation.

Ep. 146 – Divorce Italian Style

What do you do when you’ve the girl of your dreams (your cousin), but you find yourself hindered by another (your wife)? And what if the social institution (the church) that controls your cultural norms forbids divorce? But what if it also doesn’t frown too heavily on killing a spouse for cheating? Now that’s what I call some fun comedic setup! Divorce Italian Style.
