    #787: Dunkirk (Nolan #8) / Nolan Awards

    31/07/2020 Duración: 01h40min

    Back in 2017, Christopher Nolan's DUNKIRK made both Adam and Josh's Top 10 of the year. (It was Josh's #1.) For this revisit - the final film in their Nolan "Oeuvre-view" - they praise the film's masterful technique and the way it offers a distillation of the director's obsessions—with time, professionalism, guilt and redemption. Plus, their Nolan Awards - "The Polaroids" - with Adam and Josh naming their favorite performances, scenes and 'Nolan moments' from the retrospective including their final rankings of Nolan's filmography. (edited)  0:00 - Billboard 1:14 - Nolan #8: "Dunkirk" Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, "Dreamsicle" 41:25 - Next Week/Notes / Poll 50:01 - Nolan "Oeuvre-view" Awards 1:33:14 - Outro  Learn more about your ad choices.

    24/07/2020 Duración: 01h07min

    Kelly Reichardt's FIRST COW opened in limited release in March—and less than two weeks later the COVID-19 pandemic shut theaters down. The film, which Adam and Josh both named the #1 movie of the year back in June, finally arrived on demand earlier this month. In their conversation with Reichardt, Adam and Josh ask the director about her relationship with nature (she's "not a camper") and about her choice to shoot in a 4:3 aspect ratio ("the most flattering ratio for closeups"). 0:00 - Billboard 1:08 - Interview: Kelly Reichardt Angelica Garcia, "It Don't Hinder Me" 24:01 - Next Week/Notes 27:30 - Massacre Theatre 32:38 - Review: "First Cow" (from March 2020) 58:54 - Outro Learn more about your ad choices.

    17/07/2020 Duración: 01h26min

    In Christopher Nolan's INTERSTELLAR, Matthew McConaughey's Cooper battles the forces of quantum physics (and regular old physics) to save humanity. In the new existential romantic comedy PALM SPRINGS, Andy Samberg and Chritin Milioti have to navigate some quantum physics themselves (the Groundhog Day variety)—to save themselves and find some meaning in existence.

    A blowhard anti-science mayor ignoring the threat of a murderous invisible menace because it threatens the economy? What could JAWS possibly have to offer us 45 years later?

    12/06/2020 Duración: 01h48min

    While it's true that there's never a bad time for a new Spike Lee Joint, right now just happens to be an especially good time to be getting a new film from a master director who has spent the last three-and-a-half decades challenging us to consider the ways that racism defines American life. New to Netflix this weekend, Lee's DA 5 BLOODS doesn't disappoint. Adam and Josh debate the effectiveness of a key performance, and some of Lee's - always bold - aesthetic choices, but they agree that it's one of the year's essential films.

    #779: The Prestige (Nolan #5) / Vast of Night / Painter and the Thief

    29/05/2020 Duración: 01h27min

    Made between "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight," Christopher Nolan's THE PRESTIGE was only a modest success back in 2006, but the twisty feuding magicians drama is, for some, one of the director's very best. In their spoiler-filled review, Adam and Josh agree that, if it's not his best, it's arguably the most Nolan movie.

    #777: The Dark Knight Trilogy (Nolan #4)

    15/05/2020 Duración: 01h38min

    After scoring $2B and change at the box office and near-universal praise from audiences and critics, the only black mark on Christopher Nolan's DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY is its dubious influence on the superhero movies that followed in its wake. For the fourth installment of the Nolan "Oeuvre-view," Adam and Josh revisit the trilogy, starting with a 15th anniversary consideration of "Batman Begins."

    #776: Ghostbusters v Gremlins (8 From '84) / Bette Davis #4 - Now, Voyager

    08/05/2020 Duración: 01h54min

    Back in '84, GHOSTBUSTERS was a bigger hit than GREMLINS (#2 and #4 at the box office, respectively), and it's got the more memorable cast—and quotes ("dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!"); but is it the more interesting film? Adam and Josh agree that Joe Dante's darkly funny creature feature works as a clever satire of consumerism and American exceptionalism, disagreeing only over the movie's aesthetic, which Adam at one point refers to as "rinky dink." (Josh is having none of it.) And the Bette Davis Marathon comes to a conclusion with 1942's NOW, VOYAGER, starring Davis as a deeply repressed Boston woman with serious mommy issues ("Psycho" meets "She's All That" according to Adam).

    #774: Nolan #3 - Insomnia / Blow the Man Down / True History of the Kelly Gang

    24/04/2020 Duración: 01h27min

    Expectations were high back in 2002 for Christopher Nolan's INSOMNIA, the follow-up to his mind-bending breakthrough "Memento." But despite solid reviews and decent box office, the film has been largely forgotten by Nolan fans—including Adam and Josh. They revisit the director's third feature this week as part of their Nolan Oeuvre-view, finding a film with lots of familiar Nolan touches—and a somewhat divisive lead performance by Al Pacino. Plus, reviews of three new films: Justin Kurzel's TRUE HISTORY OF THE KELLY GANG, Tayarisha Poe's SELAH AND THE SPADES, and Danielle Krudy & Bridget Savage Cole's BLOW THE MAN DOWN—one of which gets both Adam and Josh's blessing as a 2020 Golden Brick candidate. 0:00 - Billboard 1:06 - Reviews: "Kelly Gang," "Selah and the Spades," "Blow the Man Down" Disq, "Daily Routine" 26:28 - Next Week/Notes 50:20 - Nolan Oeuvre-view #3: "Insomnia" 1:18:54 - Outro Learn more about your ad choices.

    #772: Never Rarely Sometimes Always / Nolan #2 - Memento / Madness Champion

    10/04/2020 Duración: 01h53min

    Eliza Hittman's second feature, "Beach Rats," got the director some attention in 2017, but her latest - NEVER RARELY SOMETIMES ALWAYS - came out of Sundance this year as one of the fest's most celebrated titles. In their review, Adam and Josh talk about the movie's patience and attention to detail along with the subtle brilliance of star Sidney Flanigan's performance. Christopher Nolan's breakout film was also a Sundance hit. 2001's MEMENTO, the director's second feature, went on to become a box office success and an Oscar nominee. Continuing their Nolan "Oeuvre-view," Adam and Josh revisit the film that put the director on the map and find it just as surprising and astonishing as they did almost 20 years ago.

    Christopher Nolan’s films are events—smart, ambitious and original. But before he made "Interstellar," "Dunkirk" or his "Dark Knight" trilogy—even before "Memento"—Nolan made the 70-minute indie thriller FOLLOWING. This week, Adam and Josh start their Nolan "Oeuvre-view" with Nolan's '99 debut, which gives tantalizing clues of the director he'll become and the stories he'll go on to tell. Bette Davis won a much-deserved Oscar for her performance in 1938's JEZEBEL. The William Wyler-directed drama set in ante-bellum New Orleans is the second film in our Davis Marathon.

    PURPLE RAIN was one of the highest-grossing films of 1984, but Prince's semi-autobiographical screen debut hasn't aged as well as its music has. The opposite is true of THIS IS SPINAL TAP and STOP MAKING SENSE, which were only modestly successful at the time of their release but have become two of the most celebrated rock films of all time.
