This week, film critic Brett Michel (The Boston Phoenix and the Boston Herald) joins us to discuss J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg’s nostalgic fantasy adventure Super 8. We also attempt to figure out Terrence Malick’s Palme d’Or winner The Tree of Life, which is now playing at The Coolidge Corner Theater and Kendal Square.
For our Picks of the Week, I explain why United Artists’ Harry in Your Pocket (1973), starring James Coburn and Michael Sarrazin, is worth checking out. And John recommends Kino International’s release of five new films from documentarian Nicolas Philibert, including Louvre City (1990), In the Land of the Deaf (1992), and Every Little Thing (1997).
We recorded this episode at Panera Bread in Brookline, MA. As always, we tried to find a quiet spot to record. Our apologies for that noisy cappuccino machine. (Coffee, coffee, coffee. It’s always the coffee.)
