Episode 139: The Alexa Conjecture [Run All Night; The Duke of Burgundy; Suite Francaise]
It’s Episode 139 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 the Red Light District returns, bringing news of films from the fifties, a World Cinema classic from Scandinavia, and digressions involving Maria Schell, Ava Gardner, and Otto Preminger. We have reviews of the latest Jaume Collet-Serra/Liam Neeson project “Run All Night,” wartime romance “Suite Francaise,” and meditative drama “Still Life,” while one of us was more prepared than the other for the Sapphic shenanigans in Peter Strickland’s “The Duke of Burgundy.” Elsewhere, Pete’s fondness for Sidse Babett Knudsen goes into overdrive, Cal feels guilty for a second consecutive snub of Matthias Schoenaerts, and we’re all about the Arri Alexa.
