Cinecast Episode 212 – Jeremy Davies 2.0

 
 
Thor. Is not mentioned once in this show. (To get your Marvel Norse Demigod fix, head on over to the experts at Mamo!) Instead we delve into two road-films of a very different nature. First up, the Oregon Trail meets Gerry in Kelly Reichardt’s wonderfully realized Meek’s Cutoff. We discuss the versatility of young Paul Dano, while praising Michelle Williams, Bruce Greenwood, and the miracle of ambiguous endings. Next up is the vampire-western-post-apocalypse realized in Stakeland. Much love is bestowed on this type of very smart, very sharp genre fare. And Kelly McGillis is in the film, which Andrew is still working his head around. After some batty technical issues, we move along to a few more HotDocs titles, and Kurt’s overall impression of the festival this year. A wee bit more Beauty Day talk, our DVD picks (it is a good week for a change) and finally some Netflix Instant picks in Canada and the US. Old-fashioned tangents (guns, guns, guns!) and other oddball asides litter the good old fashioned style Cinecast you have sitting before you.

As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

Here’s an “expiring soon” from Netflix Instant USA: Knife in the Water (1962, Polanski) until May 26. I plan to watch it very soon.
