#65: Tokyo Story / The OA

Finally, it’s the Ozu episode. The boys hit the Tatami mat and tackle his 1953 masterpiece: Tokyo Story. Is it the right film to watch on week 40 of your pregnancy? Then, the direct opposite: The first two episodes of the new series of The OA. It’s a detailed discussion about the full 140 mind-bending (or mind-numbing, depending on who you ask) minutes of them. Plus, surprisingly detailed birth stories from the perspective of two men. A little bit different this time.

#64: They Shall Not Grow Old / Leaving Neverland

As CPH:DOX is starting today, wine aficionado Rune and Marvel-father Tryggvi enter the trenches with Peter Jackson’s new documentary They Shall Not Grow Old. Also, the 17 hour long drone-doc Leaving Neverland gets discussed in excruciating, slowly flying-over-Neverland detail. That, the sleep-training of 3 year olds, some very pregnant ladies and some very strong beer. Hold on tight.

Re-run: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Unfortunately, due to life getting in the way, we have to take another break this week. As a consolation, we have some relevant stuff for you from our catalogue. We feel that maybe this is the perfect time to reflect on the institution that is the Oscars and in that spirit we have decided to rerun episode 38 with our discussion about Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, which got nominated for a bunch of Oscars and won two. If you haven’t heard this one, it’s a doozy. Next time, we’ll be back with a vengeance, and we might have an announcement or two.

Happy New Year / Re-run: Phantom Thread

Happy New Year to all of you. We decided to take a week off to celebrate the holiday season and to recuperate from it. It’s been a busy time for us, but rest assured, we will be back with a vengeance in a couple of weeks and have a lot of movies to catch up with. Today we are re-running our discussion on Phantom Thread, a favorite film of ours from 2018 which we feel has gotten way too little attention this year. Enjoy the show!
