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.
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.
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.
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.
This week, Columbo is deep undercover as a city maintenance worker. Wait, it’s not Columbo? Oh…that changes things.
Join us for a movie that captures the depths to which the human heart can simultaneously love, detest, abhor, support, and undermine another person all while confined to the space of a small domestic life with big personalities. Yes, that’s right, we’re watching A Woman Under the Influence.
When you try to go straight-laced, but find yourself under constant threat from your previous crime syndicate contacts, what should you do? Fight back? Become a pacifist? Or wander through a surreal Japanese landscape, get in a wild west brawl, and then take your climatic battle to the heart of your sometimes girlfriend’s club?
If you chose the third option, then you’re ready for Tokyo Drifter.
This week is for the dogs. No, we’re not watching Homeward Bound or Milo and Otis. We’re not even watching A Dog’s Purpose (though we are watching a creation of its director). So let’s take a trip on the wild side and watch the “kinda-not-dog-centric” movie, My Life As A Dog.
Sometimes you see a movie so noteworthy that you have to talk about it. No, we’re not talking about Joss Whedon’s sci-fi/western cult classic, but the newest pinnacle of Matthew McConaughey’s acting career. Join us for Serenity.
