Ep. 16: I’m Still Here / The Lady From Shanghai / The Stranger / Quiet City

February 21st, 2011


In lieu of seeing any of the blah-ness currently playing on Portland screens, Josh and Joey finally check out the Joaquin Phoenix meltdown thing, I'm Still Here, directed by Casey Affleck. Then your hosts rock the Co-Host Challenge with a look at two of Orson Welles' films: The Lady from Shanghai (1947) and The Stranger (1946). And to close the show, the Moviefraud Mumblecore Moment brings you Aaron Katz's film from 2007: Quiet City, a movie about... well... just listen to the review, I guess.

Music: Christopher H. Knight, "Lavo Techno" (I'm Still Here end theme) / M.I.A., "Bingo" / M.I.A., "Space"

PS. There may be a scary surprise late in the episode, so stick around to the very end!


Ep. 15: Biutiful / The Illusionist / The Lavender Hill Mob / The Remains of the Day / LOL

February 6th, 2011


It's the fifteenth episode of Moviefraud, and it's our most global show yet! First we'll go to Spain with Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu's "Biutiful", starring Javier Bardem, to examine one man's pain. Then we travel to Paris and Edinburgh in "The Illusionist", the new animated French film by Sylvain Chomet. BOOM - Joey flies us to London with his Co-Host Challenge for the week: British Cinema. Stay for a cup of tea as we check out 1951's "The Lavender Hill Mob", starring Alec Guiness, and the 1993 Merchant-Ivory production "The Remains of the Day", starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson. Finally to close the show, we'll return home to the States with our first installment of the Mumblecore Moment here on Moviefraud. Josh's pick is "LOL", a 2006 film by Joe Swanberg about cell phones and just like... stuff, man. American love and computer stuff.

Music: The Streets, "Don't Mug Yourself" / The Streets, "Fit But You Know It" / Qualia, "Plasma (Freshwater Mix)"
