Welcome to the post-bicentennial era of the Cinecast at Row Three. After a scattered release on DVD, VOD, and late-in-the-game theatrical in Canada, the odd and unusual Greek Tragedy Dogtooth is mulled over by Andrew, Gamble and Kurt, and in the spirit of doing a second Oscar Foreign Language nominee in a single episode, Kurt talks about the French-Canadian entry; the marvelous Polanski-meets-Haneke mystery-drama from Denis Villeneuve, Incendies. From there it is a lengthy “What We Watched” episode that stretches from Nazi war-crimes trials to abortion documentaries to Ryan Reynolds and Carmen Electra before taking a breath and plunging into head-trauma-and-doll-fantasy-therapeutic-art, HBOs Boardwalk Empire, Donald Sutherland horror films of the 1970s, music-laden Mennonite police procedurals and Mr. Holland’s Fuckin’ Opus. You have been warned, these waters run deep.
DVD picks are just as strange and diverse. It’s all good folks.
As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
