Episode 6: Book and a Movie - The Long Goodbye

Welcome back to Film Baby Film. Life has been very good and very busy, as I've been traveling and moving and recording game shows (!), but I am definitely thrilled to get back to podcasting.

On today's episode, we are joined by artist/poet Kurt Eidsvig, who joins us to discuss THE LONG GOODBYE, both the 1973 film by Robert Altman and the 1953 novel by genre master Raymond Chandler.

The first 13 minutes are an intro where I discuss some of what has been happening since my last episode, as well as explaining why I podcast. Feel free to skip ahead to listen to the discussion, but do yourself a favor: listen to the ending. Kurt is one hell of a guest and I am confident this won't be our last "Book and a Movie" episode we record together.

Episode 5: Thingmar Bergdays - Summer with Monika

FBF welcomes back Travis Trudell to discuss Summer with Monika, Ingmar Bergman's 1953 film about falling in and out of love.

Until 17:40, we discuss Netflix shows and our favorite podcast. 17:40 to 40:35, Jon and Travis present an overview of the film, as well as some context about Bergman, Harriet Andersson, and Sweden (the setting for the film). From 40:35 on Jon and Travis discuss the film Summer with Monika in-depth. This is not spoiler-free, so watch the movie first.

Episode 4: Thingmar Bergdays - Secrets of Women

FBF welcomes Travis Trudell to discuss Secrets of Women, Ingmar Bergman's 1952 film about the trials and tribulations of love and marriage. The best (and perhaps only) way to see this movie in the US is on Filmstruck. This is too bad, as Travis and Jon argue, because this movie marks a shift to the more mature and experimental Bergman.

First spoiler-free "Trailer Trash" episode, where they discuss (you guessed it!) five trailers of upcoming films, and tell you whether or not they are excited to see them.

Jon is joined by attorney and former Arts & Living journalist Ryan Benharris for a free-wheeling discussion about Dunkirk, Detroit, Atomic Blonde, Valerian, and Brigsby Bear. They also get into the pros and cons of review aggregator sites like Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic.
