Another Kind of Distance: A Time Travel Podcast
About This Show
Elise Moore and David Fiore aspire to cover every time travel film ever made (in this continuum, at least). Together, we'll dive deeply and dialogically into this eternally compelling genre. Our discussions will draw from philosophy, psychology, anthropology, history, narratology, and aesthetic theory. We'll even try to wrap our minds around the physics, when the films demand it. It's an ode to paramours and paradox by two people who really give a flux.
Please let us know what you think of our approach - and chime in with your own impressions. We're all living in the same time period - we ought to take advantage of that, don't you think?
Most Recent Episode
Random Harvest (1942) & Archangel (1990)
Finally, the long-promised amnesia episode! If you haven't forgotten. (BOOM! Amnesia joke right away.) Elise and Dave look at Canadian cult film Archangel (1990) (the one not with Daniel Craig in it) by Guy Maddin and one of its sources, another amnesiac soldier film, Mervyn LeRoy's classical Hollywood melodrama Random Harvest (1942). We make our case for why amnesia movies in general, and these two in particular, ought to be thought about in a time travel narrative context. Elise, who used to be married to Guy, tries to explain the thought processes behind some of the scenes in Archangel, but Dave arguably does a better job.
