  1. Always Love the News Intro before The Criterion Announcements on the 15th of each month!

  2. Mad Max Fury Road Rocks in 3D!

  3. Maybe it is my slow-talking Kentucky dialect, but I have the most difficult time following movies from the UK. About 10 minutes into the film I had to turn on the subtitles to catch everything that was being said. I had a similar experience with the movie “Snatch” and just never could get into it. However, once I treated this English-speaking movie as a foreign film I did enjoy it quite a bit.
    Good podcast. The amount of effort and research in the episode was evident.

    • Thanks, Antoine. I am the same way with a lot of English films. Now the mainstream period films are usually easy to understand, but try a Ken Loach without subtitles. You’ll barely understand a word. I think IF was pretty understandable, but I liked the dialog so much that I went with subtitles.
