News from the Croisette lures Irini and Cal back to the microphone, as we discuss yesterday’s announcement of the 70th Cannes Film Festival lineup, featuring (among others) new films from Andrey Zvyagintsev, Lynne Ramsay, Todd Haynes, and podcast favourite Sofia Coppola. We’re also catching up with news we haven’t discussed since the last episode, chief of which is *that* infamous Oscar mix-up, plus we touch upon the surprise smash hit “Get Out” and dig into some seriously juicy female-led TV shows. Elsewhere, Irini shamelessly flaunts some national pride when we discuss one of the festival’s entries, we vehemently disagree on the virtues of the Safdie brothers, and Cal tests Irini’s patience by taking a pop at Xavier Dolan and all but killing off Michael Haneke.

  • Oscars catastrophe
  • Oscar rule changes
  • Get Out
  • Big Little Lies / Feud

Episode 142: Age Of Consent

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.

Listener question/rant [Ibbi]: Colleen Atwood vs. Sandy Powell 

Cannes Film Festival: We dig into the line-up for this year’s festival, featuring films by Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Jacques Audiard, and Hirokazu Koreeda!

It’s Episode 59 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 going retro with this week’s podcast, as we discuss the otherworldly prowess of Rita Hayworth in 1946 noir “Gilda,” which Pete caught recently in all of its digitally restored glory. We also discuss two films deliberately harking back to the good old days, with silent fairy-tale “Blancanieves” facing off against Noah Baumbach’s “Manhattan” wannabe, “Frances Ha.” We both snubbed hairly Hugh Jackman in “The Wolverine,” Pete opting for French biographical drama “Renoir” and Cal badly in need of light relief in the form of “The Internship.” We take time out to discuss the lineup of this year’s Venice Film Festival, which Pete will be attending, while Cal is perturbed by the loss of a super comedic actress. Listen for digressions involving Miley Cyrus, Rose Byrne’s portrayal of blindness, and a distasteful slur on Greta Gerwig which caused Cal to label Pete “below the belt.”

Opening Segment:
 The week’s news, featuring three major deaths in the world of sport, TV, and film, and discussing this year’s Venice Film Festival lineup, featuring work from Stephen Frears, Terry Gilliam, and Kelly Reichardt!   [1:30 – 17:20]
