Cannes I Kick It
Kiyoshi Kurosawa with J. Kim Murphy

Kiyoshi Kurosawa with J. Kim Murphy

October 15, 2021

Spooky month will not be stopped, we're checking out the freaky world of Kiyoshi Kurosawa. Variety's J. KIM MURPHY joins us to look at three (roughly) consecutive offerings from the turn of the century: CHARISMA, SEANCE, and PULSE. We get into his formalism, his humor, and of course, his spooks and scares.

Spooky Month! We’re kicking it off with a shriek! By visiting the weird world of Peter Strickland and his fascinating aesthetic. We are joined by Congratulations CEO, Blank Check Producer, and Slow Christmas Curator BEN HOSLEY. Together we look at the audio stylings of BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO, have a frank discussion about fetishes in THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY, and talk about the deadly fashion of IN FABRIC.

The New York Film Festival Preview Blowout 2021 with Sam Herbst

September 24, 2021

New York baby! The greatest in the world! And CIKI, as this episode is released, is descending upon it to take in the NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL in all its glory! As such, we thought it appropriate to preview our festival runs with friend of the show and fellow NYFF attendee SAM HERBST! Hear what movies we’re seeing on what day! Hear how we are getting into New York City! Hear us worry about a 4DX screening of VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE which has since somewhat resolved. Also, Cullen has a list!

September 10, 2021

Fall Festival season is in full swing, so we kick off this week with a look at Telluride and Venice reactions and the briefest of previews of Jesse’s TIFF plans. We are then joined by CLARE REY to talk about 3 of Pablo Larrain’s most notable films in anticipation of SPENCER(00:42:18). We discuss NO, NERUDA, and JACKIE, his perspective on history and politics, and how all of his films have terrible SEO.
