LENS ME YOUR EARS Update: January 2021

My fellow podcast host Stephen Cooke and I have been busy watching new and classic films and discussing them using the magic of remote recording during this ongoing pandemic.

Our newest episode of the film podcast LENS ME YOUR EARS is now available to enjoy online wherever you get your finer podcast content — including Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify — and it’s a banger, if I may say so myself.

Lens Me Your Ears Podcast

If you’re not a podcaster, the newest episode will also air on Tuesday, January 26, at 5:30pm on CKDU, 88.1 FM in Halifax.

On this episode we consider a number of Jane Fonda’s best films, starting with her recent Netflix picture, Our Souls At Night, and going back to Cat Ballou, Barefoot In The Park, They Shoot Horses Don’t They?, Klute, The China Syndrome, and many more. Nine pictures from her impressive filmography are now available to enjoy on Criterion Channel.

If you’re up for checking out more of our recent LMYE chats, on our previous episode we discuss Wonder Woman 1984, which prompts a look at other new and new-ish films by directors who happen to be women. And going back a couple of eps, we offer our own additions to The New York Times list of the Best Actors of the 21st Century. (I make the case for Carey Mulligan, even though at that point we hadn’t yet seen what is clearly some of her best work in Promising Young Woman.)
