September 9, 2020

In this episode, Dan and Jaime review the recently released science fiction short film Slice of Life. Described as a love letter to similar films of the 1980s, directors Luka Hrgović and Dino Julius craft a world so authentically and perfectly, the only comparison that holds up is Ridley Scott’s genre defining film Blade Runner, released in 1982.

Join us as we review the film and discuss all of the love and care that went into its magnificent creation.

For many fans in the English-speaking world, Blade Runner 2049 was their first exposure to the work of Denis Villeneuve. But for those lucky enough to have discovered his oeuvre earlier—whether through his searing Canadian work or his Hollywood breakthrough in the early 2010s—Blade Runner 2049 was confirmation of what they likely already knew: Denis Villeneuve is a talent of the very highest caliber. 

In this next entry of our extended exploration into Blade Runner 2049, Dan, Jaime, and Patrick discuss Denis’ unique filmmaking gifts through the lens of his previous films, laying the groundwork for our next conversation on how those gifts helped make Blade Runner 2049 the miracle we know it to be today.

July 14, 2020

Blade Runner (1982) is singular in that it's a film that never asked for a sequel, nor, arguably, did it need one. In 2017, despite a lack of demand, the world, and fandom was given a sequel. In this second entry in our new series, covering Blade Runner: 2049, Dan, Patrick, and Jaime discuss whether or not Blade Runner needed a sequel, and where fandom was before the news of 2049.

BONUS EPISODE // FRAME RATE: Moonlight

BONUS EPISODE // FRAME RATE: Moonlight

July 11, 2020
Powerful yet sensitive, Moonlight (2016) is a unique coming-of-age story that portrays a man's conflict with identity, sexuality, loneliness, and self-discovery. This three-part drama follows the story of Chiron, a young boy growing up in Miami under arduous circumstances including bullying, violence, drug addiction and poverty. As he becomes older, other characters come in and out of his life, and it is through these interactions that we see Chiron begin to develop his own understanding of a world that is both harsh and beautiful–exhilarating and terrifying–and callously indifferent.
Through deliberate choices in score and cinematography, we are fully immersed in this world. Barry Jenkins' (screenplay/directing) and Tarell Alvin McCraney's (playwright) beautiful, intimate story brought us together in a way we haven't seen a film do in a long time. Join Jaime, Patrick, and Dan as we discuss this artistic masterpiece.
