It’s Episode 58 of In the Mood for Podcast, a British-based film podcast hosted by Calum Reed of Ultimate Addict and Pete Sheppard of In the Mood for Blog. The Gods of podcasting deride us from above as several interruptions (including a mouse!) curtailed last week’s documentary-heavy episode. We provide a quick round-up of last week’s offerings including Alex Gibney’s topical Wikileaks feature, “We Steal Secrets,” grim Indonesian piece, “The Act of Killing,” and Sarah Polley’s third theatrical venture, “Stories We Tell.” Pixar is mercifully spared as Pete summarises “Monsters University” in less than a minute, and Cal has some observations about “The Deep.” Moving onto this week, we tackle the pub crawl politics in Edgar Wright’s “The World’s End,” while Pete goes it alone for Austrian film “The Wall,” and Cal dishes the dirt on crime thriller “Eden” and Drake Doremus’s “Breathe In.” Listen as Cal apologises for last week’s technical debacle, and we go on tangents involving Samsara, the Best Actress Oscar race of 1989, Felicity Jones’s eternal youth, and some personal drinking anecdotes.
Opening Segment: The week’s news (including a big festival announcement!) and a round-up of last week’s reviews, featuring comment on “Monsters University,” “The Deep,” “The Act of Killing,” “We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks,” and “Stories We Tell”  [2:30 – 16:10]
