High and Low (Brow) – Series 4 Episode 3 – At the Movies
And we’re back! Thanks to my busy work schedule we’ve had quite a bit of a lay over between episodes of High and Low (Brow), but that only makes it all the sweeter, right? Right? Anyways, this time we come to you bearing gifts, those gifts being a new segment of James Gillham: Pop Culture Guru and huge political tangents all while trying to analyze this episode’s theme, At the Movies, provided for us by one Angela Fabbrini of The Film Confessional Podcast.
The theme of this episode of High and Low (Brow) covers movies about making movies, and first up we have the Mumblecore film Baghead from the Duplass Brothers. Moving on from there we also watched the French New Wave film Day for Night from legendary director François Truffaut. But those films are hardly all that we discuss, as we touch on Star Wars Episode VII, gun violence in the United States and why James doesn’t know more elderly French female impersonators. It’s kind of a packed show.
If you have any recommendations for films we could watch for High and Low (Brow), or want to suggest a potential theme for us to use, or simply want to tell James how awesome he is, feel free to email us and tell us your ideas. If you enjoy the show make sure to subscribe through iTunes or our RSS feed so you can catch every new episode. Also, please friend James on Facebook, Letterboxd and his second attempt at Twitter. Because it will frighten and confuse him. And while you’re there be sure to join our relatively new Facebook group devoted to Where the Long Tail Ends.
One more thing, if you enjoy the show feel free to donate to it through PayPal in either a single installment or as a recurring donor. We’ve done some upgrading to our equipment in recent months, and every little bit helps as we continue to try ans stay ahead of the curve.
And, as always, thanks for listening!
