Calvary

Calvary

September 16, 2022

As TIFF wraps up and we travel home, we once again turn to our reliable recurring donors to solicit a movie for us to examine. And here we are assigned John Michael McDonagh's 2014 Sundance and Berlin title, CALVARY. What's the difference between Cavalry and Calvary? How do we feel about Catholicism in movies? What's the deal with the McDonagh Brothers? How cool are the original PLANET OF THE APES movies? We talk all this and more. TIFF Reports on their way next week!

Taylor Swift at TIFF and Festival Games

Taylor Swift at TIFF and Festival Games

September 9, 2022

Venice and Telluride are happening and TIFF is imminent, so what better time to pause and take stock of our film festival knowledge with a game? After taking a look at some last minute switches at TIFF, the competition premieres at Venice, early reports from the pundits at Telluride, a distribution deal or two, and getting deep into the Taylor Swift and the Supernatural of it all, Gamemaster Cullen comes back, expanding from his previously Ken Loach Only domain to quiz us on the last year of festivals and more. Your hosts are either currently on the ground at TIFF or are soon to be, so look for more from us soon reporting on our festival experience!

Locarno! It's in Switzerland! And it has recently finished its film festival! We take a look at 2 competition titles we were able to see: HUMAN FLOWERS OF FLESH and MATTER OF OUT PLACE.

The 2022 Fall Festival Preview Blowout Goes On and Love and Mercy

The 2022 Fall Festival Preview Blowout Goes On and Love and Mercy

August 19, 2022

Have we mentioned that there is a lot of festival news in August? In the last week we've gotten two NYFF sections (Spotlight and Currents) and three full TIFF sections (Documentaries, Contemporary World Cinema, and Shorts) plus a few smaller additions with more to come. Andy and Jesse break it down as we await the final pieces to fall into place with the looming schedule announcements. After that Cullen and Emilio join Andy and the Ghost of Jesse for a discussion of Bill Pohlad's second feature - the bifurcated Brian Wilson biopic LOVE & MERCY, in anticipation of DREAMIN' WILD.

NYFF 2022 Main Slate and Killing Them Softly

NYFF 2022 Main Slate and Killing Them Softly

August 12, 2022

August Announcements continue as the Fall Festival Landscape continues to take shape. A few minor TIFF announcements are followed by a deep dive into the NYFF Main Slate, from the 60th anniversary Armageddon Time addition and the intriguing choice of a lower profile Closing Gala to the snubs and don't-call-them-flubs of the unexpected titles, we discuss it all! And then in our continuing preview of The Directors Of The Fall we dig into Venice (and more?) player Andrew Dominik's KILLING THEM SOFTLY in anticipation of BLONDE. Opinions Diverge!
