Embrace the Cinema Shame
As soon as I heard that Cinema Shame was now a podcast I instantly new I was in for something special. The host Jay Patrick does a fantastic job invited film buffs to tackle those big films that have eluded them over the years. He encourages guests to embrace their cinema shame and challenge themselves to something new. I love the long format conversational style of each episode and look forward to entries. Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in film and a long commute to work.

The best kind of Shame!
Great bits of talk about the movies that elude us. Each show discusses why that guest hadn't seen a particular "classic" and then breaks it down from a contemporary perspective. How does this movie hold up? How does expectation and cultural omnipresence cloud judgment?
