Episode 142: Age Of Consent
[1:34:55]
You can Listen online

It’s Episode 142 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.

We’re back after a two-and-a-half week absence with a packed lineup! As we catch up on the releases from the past fortnight, we’re reviewing five films, including the highly-anticipated new film from Christian Petzold, “Phoenix,” and Keanu Reeves’ foray into the action genre with “John Wick.” Cal reveals all about Noah Baumbach’s latest observation on the middle-classes, “While We’re Young” and Andrew Niccol’s moralistic war drama “Good Kill,” while we finish by talking about teen flick “The DUFF,” which Pete suspected that Cal would like. Elsewhere, in the wake of Thursday’s announcement of the Cannes Film Festival lineup, we assess upcoming films from Gus Van Sant, Paolo Sorrentino, and more, a listener’s rant re-instigates a costuming discussion from our last episode, and a controversial Pootsition flies narrowly close to the age of consent.

In this week’s episode we’re joined by special guest and friend of the podcast Irini Markogiannaki, who helps us discuss the new releases at UK cinemas and chimes in with thoughts on eventful news items from the past few days. Some minor audio issues should mostly have been ironed out in the editing process, so you can enjoy our reviews of Luc Besson’s mafia comedy “The Family,” and Peter Landesman’s JFK assassination movie “Parkland” in relatively audible splendour. Cal and Irini reveal whether indie critics darling “Short Term 12” lives up to the hype, and there are verdicts on angst-ridden baby swap drama “Like Father Like Son” and black and white mumblecore offering “Computer Chess.” We ponder Leeds Film Festival’s audience favourites, conduct a
 rather epic pre greekconception corner, while a revelation about a planned remake of one of the week’s films causes Pete to recoil in horror. Tune in to find out which movie dumbfounded us with its music choices, which actor caused the man-loving podcasters to go weak at the knees, and why Irini’s encounter with Quentin Tarantino means that she owes Pete a huge apology.

It’s Episode 38 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 we finally put awards chat to bed (any bets on when that vow will end?!) when we discuss the winners and losers from Sunday’s Academy Awards, and at least one nominee is on show as Jessica Chastain’s foray into Horror, “Mama,” gets the ‘mood for’ treatment. Pete goes it alone with choral cancer flick “Song for Marion,” before we go all world cinema on you with reviews of the Australian “Lore” and the Japanese “I Wish.” We tackle the long, puzzling, and divisive “Cloud Atlas,” and then Pete sinks his teeth into Tarkovsky’s “Andrei Rublev,” which Cal made him watch as a forfeit. Perhaps the moral of this week’s podcast is “patience is a virtue”?
