Here’s episode 10! We’re discussing Spellbound from 1945, talking about people with the initials JB, Daliesque dream sequences and how online quizzes are a good substitute for psychoanalysis
We’re back with episode nine. We’re talking about Suspicion from 1941, discussing early incidences of negging, when Hollywood endings go astray and why the Oscar was given to the wrong actor
We’re back with episode eight and we’re talking about The Birds from 1963. We discuss its similarities to a zombie film, our preferred hypothetical ending and why stalking isn’t what it used to be.
We’re back with our seventh episode, this time covering Juno and the Paycock from 1929 (or perhaps 1930). We try to make sense of post-World War One Irish history, discuss the logistics of fleeing countries out of shame and muse about which character belonged in the Phantom Zone
Hello, hello (hola!). We’re at a film called Vertigo. It’s the Alfred Hitchcock classic from 1958, and we’re discussing the size of Kim Novak’s legs, the employment prospects of doppelgangers and the importance of packing a lunch when you’re a murderer.
In the fifth episode, we talk about a talking picture! It’s The Skin Game, from 1931. We discuss horrible families being horrible to one another, belatedly realise a character’s existence and muse about the comic premise of Here Come The Habibs
In the fourth picture we’ve covered, we’re less concerned about the trouble with Harry and far more concerned with the sociopathic inhabitants of a small Vermont town, why having a frog in your pants is a good move on a first date and how life becomes easier when absurdly generous millionaires pop in to help.
For our third picture, we talk about the very silent Easy Virtue from 1928 and investigate why scandals aren’t what they used to be, what makes a mother-in-law really terrible and why the hell Dan can’t remember Weekend At Bernie’s
For our second movie, we examine Strangers on a Train from 1951 and discuss the upsides of being anti-social, why nepotism is sometimes a good thing and the importance of carousel safety standards
For our first movie, we discuss Rear Window from 1954 and speculate on the nature of voyeurism, whether or not a murder actually took place and what Jimmy Stewart’s problem might be.
