It’s Episode 35 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. With the awards bait officially out of the way we’re turning our attentions towards top ten lists this week, but will any of our picks match? We attempt to find gems among the wreckage of “Flight” and the frottage of “Hyde Park on Hudson,” while Pete endures the pop-happy politics of “Starbuck.” We’re previewing the upcoming Berlin Film Festival, the lineup of which includes Richard Linklater’s highly-anticipated “Before Midnight” and Wong Kar-wai’s flashy-looking “The Grandmasters.” We also take some time to consider the difficulties of list-making, and crow about our brand-spanking new site.
