In this episode of cinema on the road, Jhon and Seema sum up their favorite films from 2012. Feel free to either appreciate our picks or better yet mock and deride us for missing out on important viewings. Anything neither of us got to this year is eligible next year.. so your favorites have a shot at being CoTR favorites yet.
We wish all our listeners an exciting and fun-filled 2013.
In this episode, Jhon and Seema take stock of their 2012 viewing. Yes, it’s that time of the year again. In this episode, we take a look at our favorite older movies seen for the first time this year. Marvel at how Seema cheats with her #1. The Top 10 of 2012 episode will be coming soon.
In this episode, Jhon and Seema take an austere trip to Thailand with Pen-ek Ratanaruang’s latest film, Headshot and what is supposedly the oldest surviving feature film from Thailand, The King of the White Elephant.
In this special bonus episode of CoTR, we are joined by our friend Ty Landis who was at the Toronto International Film Festival with Seema. Ty regularly contributes articles and reviews to the Sound on Sight website and also maintains a film blog.
Seema and Ty talk about the films they got to watch and others they wish they had watched at the festival and in the process manage to put poor old man Jhon to sleep! Either that or Jhon really needs to explain all that heavy breathing we hear throughout!
In this bonus episode, Jhon and Seema respond to the recently released results of the 2012 Sight & Sound poll, confess to blind spots and share their own Top 10 lists created Vishnevetsky style. Please feel free to link to or share your reactions to the poll as well as your own lists in the comments section.
In this episode, Seema and Jhon jaunt on over to Norway and discuss Oslo, August 31 (2011) and Pinchcliffe Grand Prix (1975). Things are depressing and then hilarious.
Based on feedback from a few listeners, we’ve decided to move all recommendations (from each other as well as listeners) to bonus episodes. In this episode, Jhon talks about Catherine Breillat’s Brief Crossing (2001) and Seema talks about Bernard Queysanne’s The Man Who Sleeps (1974).
In this episode, Jhon and Seema travel to Hong Kong but exclusively to hang out with the cool kids from the Milky Way production house, Johnnie To & Wai Ka-Fai. We discuss the two most recent Johnnie To films, Romancing in Thin Air and Life Without Principle and discussing Wai Ka-Fai’s film from 1997, Too Many Ways to Be No. 1.
In this episode, Seema drags Jhon kicking and screaming to cold, grey UK to talk about Terence Davies’s film, The Deep Blue Sea (2011) and American director Joseph Losey’s very British film, The Servant (1963). We also discuss Stephen Dwoskin’s Behindert and Claude Chabrol’s La Rupture.
