TC - 2017 Favorites With Keith Uhlich (Part Two)
7 days ago
On one hand, cinema has mutated. It is no longer contained to the theater and its methods no longer simply produce simply 3 act narrative features. But was it ever so limited? The first films were hand cranked into a box at a parlor on 34th street. The military in WWII made cinema portable in order to bring secrets across enemy lines. Films taught people their trades. Video tape launched a spiritual and later political revolution against the dominant mode. The medium was never the message, so let's just celebrate what was seen and experienced—the movement was not just in the image but in our bodies (the real movement...was love). All is this to say, Keith and Peter have good fun exploring their favorite works of 2017, debating the nature of reality in a series of works either attempting to pull it from other the rug or expose it through unsuspecting places. Is it future? Or is it past? Or is it simply the now in which me must live. And live we must. 0:00-2:27 Opening 2:28-47:16 Picks for #5 47:16-1:16:00 Picks for #4 1:16:01-1:34:31 Picks for #3 1:35:14-1:39:05 Sponsorship Section 1:40:07-2:09:39 Picks for #2 2:09:40-2:25:07 Pick for #1 2:25:08-2:27:14 Final Thoughts 2:27:31-2:29:57 Close

Very Good Podcast
The Cinephiliacs is a very good podcast that should be enjoyable to anyone who is a cinephile or anyone interested is criticism/analysis. The show is well structured, the host is competent and the guest are interesting. The audio quality could be improved. The host and some of the younger guests tend to pepper their speech with useless words: um, kind of, sort of, like, uh, just, you know, sounding pretty unsure and in a way lacking confidence type of stuff and not "quote" speaking with conviction. It irritates me. It may not even register for others.
Overall a good show. I will continue to listen to and I hope it gets better.
