Episode 73 – 8 1/2

, with special guest:

8 1/2We are sad to say goodbye to Jena as a regular co-host and movie non-expert but that means we will have rotating cast of non-experts instead!  This episode, Tonya Wershow from our sister podcast, A Reel Education: Noir, joins us for Federico Fellini’s 8 1/2.  The movie is surreal and collapses in on itself like a black hole and it is all pretty brilliant.  At least we thought so.  We also thought the cinematography was lush and amazing.  Definitely worth a viewing although it will probably take more than one to see everything that is going on.

Our next movie will be The Lion in Winter!

Episode 70 – Fitzcarraldo

FitzcarraldoWe continue down the Werner Herzog rabbit hole this week to watch Fitzcarraldo!  A movie that was years in the making, this is one of those films where the story of the making of the movie is possibly more interesting than the film itself.  Don’t let that statement fool you, though, the movie is a spectacular journey into the Amazon jungle and one man’s madness.  Or, if you include Werner Herzog, possibly two men.  If you want to move a boat over a mountain, sometimes you have to make a movie.

Our next film will keep us in the jungle as we watch Tarzan the Ape Man!
