About This Show

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.

Our conversation about movies about talking to aliens moves to the present with Denis Villeneuve’s new ARRIVAL, which hits many of the same narrative points as CONTACT, but points them in a different emotional direction. We talk about our reactions to the newer film, and how its ideas about science, communication, and emotion compare with CONTACT’s. 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 CONTACT, ARRIVAL, or both by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or leaving a short voicemail at (773) 234-9730. 00:00-01:40 - Intro 01:41-25:34 - "Arrival" 25:35-39:41 - Connections 39:42-50:40 - Your Next Picture Show: *Genevieve: Ava DuVernay’s 13TH *Scott: Paul Verhoeven’s ELLE *Keith: Criterion’s LONE WOLF AND CUB box set *Tasha: TORCHWOOD “Children of Earth” miniseries, Ben Wheatley’s HIGH-RISE50:41-53:41 - Outro
