Wong Kar-Wai's sumptuous film "In the Mood for Love" premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2000 and, while it lost the Palm d'Or, it left an indelible impression on everyone who saw it. A story of a connection between a man and woman who learn their spouses are having an affair, the film deals with their growing friendship as they help each other come to terms with the infidelity. In the process, they also struggle with their own draw to each other. Join us — Pete Wright and Andy Nelson — as we discuss the first of our Listener's Choice films. Steven Smart won the drawing and chose this film for us to discuss, and we're thrilled he did because we both fell in love with it. We talk about the nature of the love between the two leads played by Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung and how, on the one hand, the draw they have to each other is never consummated because they don't want to stoop to the level of their spouses, while on the other hand, they both are afraid that it's not what the other person wants so they don't act. We discuss the stunning look of the film, both from a cinematography standpoint as well as costumes and production design, and how the artists behind those elements make the film what it is. And we chat about director Wong Kar-Wai and how he started making one film but ended up with this one (perhaps because he did this without a script?). It's a beautiful film that touched both of us with its art and finesse. We had a wonderful time watching this film and have a great time chatting about it. Tune in!
While the first two Mad Max films had so much going for them, it sure seemed like a stumble with the third of the trilogy. But that’s looking at it through today’s eyes because some critics like Roger Ebert sure loved it — he put it on his ’10 Best’ list of 1985! Okay, so George Miller had lost his producing partner, Byron Kennedy, and let George Ogilvie co-direct it with him. Maybe that’s why “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” seems to be a bit of a stumble. Maybe it was the American financing that made it feel less gritty and more… Hollywood. Whatever it was, it’s definitely the lesser of the three films. Join us — Pete Wright and Andy Nelson — as we go beyond Thunderdome with Mel Gibson and Tina Turner, continuing our Mad Max series with Miller’s 1985 film. We talk about all of the problems it has, and how Andy still finds it a guilty pleasure while Pete downright hates it. We talk about the great concepts Miller and co-writer Terry Hayes had in putting this story together, but how poorly executed they were — every one of them. We chat about the joy of working with 400 pigs on set and what they had to do to make that work. We discuss the car chase — way too late in the movie for our tastes — and how it works in comparison with those we’ve seen come before. And we deliberate on where we think “Fury Road” will fit chronologically with these first three films. It’s a very problematic film on which we find ourselves split, but it’s a very fun film to talk about. Tune in!
