I really do enjoy my invites over to Patrick and Jim’s podcasting house to talk about whatever is on their minds. This time around, it is all about obsessing on signs and wonders in cinema. Room 237 is the documentary about obsessive viewers obsessing over Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. Upstream Color is the strange new film from Shane Carruth that is open to similar obsessive types that may want to climb down the rabbit hole. The fairly lengthy conversations over at The Director’s Club gets into what type of baggage each and every one of you can bring into a movie, and how a movie can unpack and repack that bagging into exciting new things.
Resident culture snob.
