So Peter Baran and I were delighted to be joined on our latest podcast by academic and film programmer Eloise Ross, as well as filmmaker Ian Mantgani and writer Philip Concannon from the Badlands Collective. We’re chatting about our highlights, discoveries and duds … Continue reading Ritrovato Roundtable: Il Cinema Ritrovato 2019 podcast →

    Sound Barrier: A Ghost Story (2017) & The Phantom Carriage (1921)

    14/08/2017

    A spooky double-bill for our eighth Sound Barrier podcast: A Ghost Story, David Lowery’s high-threadcount, high-concept tale of love and loss, and The Phantom Carriage, Victor Sjöström’s long, dark night of the soul.

    31/07/2017

    The Sound Barrier returns with two wartime blockbusters. In this episode, Pete Baran and I are joined in the studio by the Guardian’s Nick Dastoor. We’re debating the relative merits of Christopher Nolan’s smash-hit WWII spectacle Dunkirk and Walter Summers’ patriotic WWI re-enactment film The Battles of Coronel and Falkland Islands (1927) Sound Barrier: Dunkirk … Continue reading Sound Barrier: Dunkirk (2017) & The Battles of Coronel and Falkland Islands (1927) →

  • Sound Barrier: Der Müde Tod (1921)  The Seventh Seal (1957)

    Sound Barrier: Der Müde Tod (1921) & The Seventh Seal (1957)

    11/06/2017

    We’re breaking the Sound Barrier rules again. Or bending them slightly. Once more, the new-release film we want to discuss in this episode is actually silent. It’s the theatrical re-release of Fritz Lang’s Der Müde Tod (Destiny, 1921), so we decided to pair it with Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal (1957). This means that today … Continue reading Sound Barrier: Der Müde Tod (1921) & The Seventh Seal (1957) →

    The San Francisco Silent Film Festival has just closed for another year. Four days of movies and music at the sumptuous Castro Theatre – and this time I was actually there!

    Sound Barrier: The Red Turtle & Wall-E (2008)

    28/05/2017

    Come break the Sound Barrier with us again. In this episode, we go to the edge of the world and the ends of the earth and back again with two animated features. We’re talking about Studio Ghibli’s modern silent The Red Turtle (in cinemas now), and also Pixar’s beloved Wall-E from 2008. We talk about ‘Dustbuster Keaton’, teenage … Continue reading Sound Barrier: The Red Turtle & Wall-E (2008) →

  • Sound Barrier: Mindhorn  The Mystery of the Leaping Fish (1916)

    Sound Barrier: Mindhorn & The Mystery of the Leaping Fish (1916)

    14/05/2017

    This episode of the Sound Barrier features two druggy and slightly dim detectives. We're talking about Julian Barratt's absurdly funny TV spoof Mindhorn and the cult favourite that is The Mystery of the Leaping Fish (1916), starring Douglas Fairbanks as sleuth Coke Ennyday.

  • Sound Barrier: Lady Macbeth and The Wind (1928)

    Sound Barrier: Lady Macbeth and The Wind (1928)

    30/04/2017

    In this episode of the Sound Barrier, Silent London’s cinematic sommeliers pair Victor Sjostrom’s majestic The Wind (1928) with William Oldroyd’s astonishing debut feature Lady Macbeth, out in cinemas now. We highly recommend both films, which feature isolated women doing battle with the elements, and come laced with sex, violence and vengeance. In the studio, I am joined … Continue reading Sound Barrier: Lady Macbeth and The Wind (1928) →

    Sound Barrier: Neruda & The Beloved Rogue (1927)

    16/04/2017

    In episode two of the Sound Barrier podcast we wax poetic, with two films about poets – specifically poets in exile. The two films we will discuss – one new release and one silent classic – are Pablo Larrain’s Neruda and The Beloved Rogue (1927) starring John Barrymore. The two films may appear to be very … Continue reading Sound Barrier: Neruda & The Beloved Rogue (1927) →

    The Silent London podcast: a visit to the Regent Street Cinema

    05/05/2015

    A trip to the cinema is not always worthy of a podcast, but the Regent Street Cinema in the West End of London is a little bit special. I first visited this cinema in October 2014, when it was still mid-refurbishment. This week, I was lucky enough to see it in all its splendour, just … Continue reading The Silent London podcast: a visit to the Regent Street Cinema →
