After learning about the young musicians at the Shaffer Conservatory we had quite a lot of thoughts about the whiplashing teacher responsible for the pupils, the idea of torturing yourself for art, and how this ties in with the Cypriot figure of Pygmalion.
In this podcast we find ourselves having quite an alternative perspective on the morality of Dan Gilroy’s debut film Nightcrawler and it’s antihero protagonist.
An in-depth dive into how The Wind Rises explains the Ghibli documentary and vice versa and how this captures the retirement of Hayao Miyazaki.
We have been dying to talk about (wow, that came out heavier than meant) the latest and last animated feature movie by Hayao Miyazaki and the documentary that followed it, The Kingdom Of Dreams and Madness.
For once we let ourselves be relevant and talk about the Cannes Film Festival 2015 just before they give away the awards. A timing that does not happen often.
So you went and spend almost 3 hours to see a film that does not seem to have any point in it? Well how about spending 2 hours more listening two people talk endlessly about it.
While recording our first podcast we realized that both of us had watched La Grande Bellezza already and that we were finally able to share our thoughts on it.
Welcome to the first podcast! We don’t really know what we are doing, so we would like to take this opportunity now that we are starting to know each other and apology for any lack of professional quality in our conversation.
