About This Show
A biweekly roundtable by the former editorial team of The Dissolve examining how classic films inspire and inform modern movies. Episodes take a deep dive into a classic film and its legacy in the first half, then compare and contrast that film with a modern successor in the second. Hosted and produced by Keith Phipps, Tasha Robinson, Scott Tobias and Genevieve Koski. Part of the Filmspotting family of podcasts and the Panoply Network.

#060: (Pt. 2) Stranger Than Paradise / Paterson
Jim Jarmusch’s new PATERSON is one of 2016’s best films, and plays like a natural mirror to his breakthrough, STRANGER THAN PARADISE. After waxing rhapsodic about PATERSON for a while, we talk about how the two movies are connected, through their observational approaches, their quirky relationships with time, and their appreciation for the small things in life. We also try in vain to determine whether Jarmusch actually hates dogs, or just finds them unpredictable. Plus, Your Next Picture Show, where we share recent filmgoing experiences in hopes of putting something new on your cinematic radar.Please share your comments, thoughts, and questions about STRANGER THAN PARADISE, PATERSON, or both by sending an email to email@example.com, or leaving a short voicemail at (773) 234-9730.
