Rarely does a film truly take you into somebody's head for almost the entire film. Sure, you get POVs here and there in films, but it's a tricky tool to use, especially for longer periods of time. When Ronald Harwood hit on this in-the-head technique for his adaptation of Jean-Dominique Bauby's biography, it was exactly what the story needed to be told as a film. Enter Julian Schnabel, an artist/filmmaker who brought his own intuitive magic to the directing of it, and you end up with 2007's "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly," a stunningly gorgeous film that's as powerful a story of human resilience and beauty as it is a difficult film to watch because of the subject — a man living with locked-in syndrome. Join us — Pete Wright and Andy Nelson — as we continue our foreign language series with this brilliant film. We talk about our feelings of the movie and how powerful it is yet how difficult it can be to watch and why. We chat about the unique techniques Schnabel brings to the table in the making of the film and why they work so well with this story. We discuss the actors — Mathieu Amalric, Max von Sydow, Emmanuelle Seigner, Marie-Josée Croze and more — and how they all bring an amazing personal strength to the film. We talk about Janusz Kaminski's beautiful cinematography and how well it lends itself to the telling of this story. We bring up the novel Bauby's widowed girlfriend wrote about her experience and talk about why she got virtually left out of the film. And we look at the critical reception this film had worldwide, even if it struggled to bring in the bucks. It's a glorious poem of a film and one worth talking about. Definitely check it out then tune in!

In the late 70s and early 80s, Disney Pictures had been getting grief for releasing films that were too adult. When “Splash” came along, they decided to create a new label for releasing more adult fare. And thus, Touchstone Pictures was born! On top of that, the film was such a success that it pushed its star, Tom Hanks, and director, Ron Howard, up toward the upper echelons of the Hollywood elite. Join us — Pete Wright and Andy Nelson — as we begin our Tom Hanks series near the beginning of his career with “Splash,” a film that Andy holds near and dear to his heart while Pete struggles with many aspects of it. We talk about the beginnings of Hanks’ career and how he ended up getting cast in this film, as well as how well he works in it. We touch on the other actors — Daryl Hannah, John Candy and Eugene Levy in particular — and how they do in the film. We discuss what works for Andy and what doesn’t work for Pete and try to identify specific elements that could be causing Pete to disconnect from the movie. And we chat about the cinematography and how beautiful the film looks, standing out from the flat lighting most comedies suffer from. It’s a film Andy and Pete likely will never agree on, but it’s certainly fun to talk about. Tune in!
David Mamet's always one to put cons in his films, even when the film is a fight film taking place in the world of mixed martial arts. His 2008 film, "Redbelt," feels like a mash-up of genres — a con film, a fight film, a film noir, a samurai film, an intimate character portrait. It's a bit of all of these, and probably because it's hard to pin it down, it couldn't find its audience when it was released. Despite that, we wanted to include it in our David Mamet Directs series. Join us — Pete Wright and Andy Nelson — as we discuss the 10th film Mamet's directed. We discuss the nature of the genre mash-up and how it works for us, compared with how it worked for audiences when it came out. We talk about our opinions of the film and why it works for us, despite numerous problems. We chat about Chewie — the amazing Chiwetel Ejiofor — and not only what he brings to the role of the jiu jitsu instructor who stands by his principles against all adversity, but also how that helps make the film what it is (especially the final moments). And we talk about the amazing Robert Elswit and what he brings to the film through his stellar cinematography. It's a fascinating, wonderful film that definitely deserves to be seen by more people. Check it out and tune in!
