In recognition of yesterday’s celebration of independence by our friends to the south, a new episode of my film podcast (co-hosted by Stephen Cooke), Lens Me Your Ears, is now available. It’s #036, entitled “Make America Great,” and you can find it on iTunes and on Stitcher.
There’s no need to worry, this podcast is a Trump-free zone: For a second time, we delve into the list of Great Movies created by the late, great film critic Roger Ebert—three films joined together by the slender thread of suspense: Au Revoir Les Enfants, by Louis Malle, Lawrence Kasdan’s Body Heat, and Jean-Pierre Melville’s The Red Circle. We also say a few flattering things about a film Stephen and I both enjoyed a great deal in cinemas, Get Out.
Oh, and for those who have been following along with my recent reviews of both versions of The Beguiled, Stephen and I covered the original on Lens Me Your Ears Episode #013, The Films of Clint Eastwood.
