    Discussing The Archers

    In the latest episode of the podcast, Brian works through a long-time filmmaker blind spot. For a long time, I had not watched the work of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger- aka The Archers- but this discussion is a good time to do that. Joining me in talking about these great British filmmakers is film critic, and return guest, Matthew St. Clair, as we discuss "The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp", "Black Narcissus" and "The Red Shoes". I hope you enjoy!

    For this episode, I go a bit more introspective to lead into discussing a film that has had a profound impact on my life this year. I talk about what led me to my current profession, what I value in life, and how it relates to Wim Wender's wonderful 2023 film, "Perfect Days". I hope you enjoy! You can read more of my thoughts on the film's use of a personal soundtrack here.

    "The Crow" at 30

    Esplicito

    In July 1994, my moviewatching trajectory was changed forever when I finally watched Alex Proyas's "The Crow". The film had already become a cult hit, and had been on my radar, but it wasn't until I saw it for myself that I just came out of the theatre different. As it turns 30, it is time to finally have a discussion of the film, and its legacy, on the Sonic Cinema Podcast. Joining me on the podcast is Chris Salazar, someone whom I've known on Film Twitter for a few years, and who loves the film as well. I hope you enjoy our discussion, and listen to the other episodes I've contributed to about the film over the years. The music at the end of this episode is my 1999 composition, "In a Lonely Place," inspired by Graeme Revell's music for "The Crow." "In a Lonely Place" is on my 2000 album, "Dark Experiments". More of Brian's thoughts on "The Crow" can be found: On Sonic Cinema: 25 Years of "The Crow" Episode 31 - "The Crow," and the Evolution of "In a Lonely Place" On Other Podcasts: Close Watch: Episode 4- "The Crow" Untitled Cinema Gals Project - All the Bops

    As we hit 25 years after one of the greatest film years of my lifetime, I thought it would be a good idea to begin adding more films to this podcast series. We start with the wonderful teen rom com, "10 Things I Hate About You," adapted from Shakespeare, starring Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles. Joining me in the discussion is critic and podcaster Morgan Roberts, host of Female Gaze: The Film Club. I hope you enjoy!
