Did you think John Travolta was compelling in Grease? Magnificent in Pulp Fiction? Well, he’s stepping off the dance floor and into the recording studio…as a sound engineer caught in a deadly political game. Will his foil, John Lithgow succeed in his plans? Join us for some John on John action in Blow Out.
Wait, you thought we were done with the adventures of Johan and Marianne? Didn’t you watch the final episode of Scenes from a Marriage? That was clearly way too optimistic, am I right? So, roughly thirty years (and some weird in-universe aging shenanigans) later, how do you think our (un)happy couple is doing? Let’s find out in Ingmar Bergman’s final film: Saraband.
This week, we bring the sage of Johan and Marianne to a close. Will they reconcile? Is marriage truly the strongest bond on earth? Can Ingmar Bergman produce a happy ending? Find out in Scenes from a Marriage, episodes 5 and 6.
Another week, another reminder that all that is warm and rosy is destined to wither and fade. Sorry, we rejoin Ingmar Bergman this week for the continuing tale of Marianne and Johan. Will their marriage survive? Will they find happiness? Find out in Scenes from a Marriage, episodes 3 and 4.
Marriage. It can be pretty trying. But leave it to Ingmar Bergman to take a deeper look at this wonderful social institution and leave us with a “realistic” depiction of individuals growing and changing. Join us for the first two episodes of Scenes from a Marriage.
Dr. Zed is moving to Ireland, which is…kind of near Sweden, so he thought the podcast would take a look at the ethnographic documentary, Midsommar. After all, what could be more exciting than a group of graduate students ardently pursuing their super-niche theses projects, right?! That’s enough to label this a terrifying horror movie.
A day late and a euro short. Dr. Zed is relocating to the Emerald Isle, so forgive him for being a bit tardy in uploading an episode. However, in honor of the move to Ireland, we’re going to re-post our episode on the Stanley Kubrick classic, Barry Lyndon.
