It’s Episode 101 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.
This week sees the debut review of perennial podcast talking point and all-around legend, Liv Ullmann, whose return to the screen in German Oscar entry “Two Lives” got tongues wagging, but did its tepid tale of espionage make a lasting impression on us? In the wake of this week’s Singapore film “Ilo Ilo,” we get to talking about other recent Camera d’Or winners at the Cannes Film Festival, touching on some films Pete doesn’t really like, and one in particular that he can’t get enough of. Elsewhere, only one of us saw Angelina Jolie strut her stuff in Disney spin-off “Maleficent,” and the sheer insanity of Doug Liman’s “Edge of Tomorrow” had us knocked for six. Listen, as we rue a series of missed opportunities and get into a passionate discussion about the importance of film critics, while Pete rants about the recent career choices of a podcast favourite and a former co-star of Emily Blunt gets an unexpected shout-out. Vive le Yorkshire!
