Film Ireland Podcast: Episode 08

cat-with-headphones

Donnchadh, Richard and Ruairí continue their efforts to escape from the basement by bringing you more film news, reviews and pleas for freedom. Donnchadh pitches a Back to the Future project based in 1950’s Ireland, Ruairí ponders his role in The Gilmore Girls and Richard attempts to beam out of the basement – unsuccessfully.

Tuxedos and stale bread were delivered down the shaft for their pre-Oscar chat, in which the lads fight over Birdman, make up over Foxcatcher, right the wrongs of American Sniper, and hail Whiplash.

Plus Ex Machina, Into the Woods, Kingsman and Inherent Vice come under the verbal hammer and there’s an interview with Irish writer/director Terry McMahon on the eve of the release of Patrick’s Day.

Donnchadh returns to the basement  after his heavily subsidised holiday in the United States to find a malnourished Ruairí gnawing at the walls in order to stay alive. After feasting on a bucket of fish heads, the lads were able to talk film, bringing you the latest movie news, a smorgasboard of reviews including ’71, Nightcrawler and Interstellar and an interview with the wonderful cinematographer Dick Pope, whose long-working relationship with Mike Leigh continues with the sumptuous Mr Turner. Sure what else would you be listening to.

Under the dominance of apes and shackled in the basement, Ruairí & Donnchadh return to talk True Detective and investigate other movie news; the lads mark each other’s Irish homework (Breakfast on Pluto & Pilgrim Hill) and take a shwipe at schtuff in the shinema, including Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Begin Again and the game-changing Pudsey the Dog: The Movie.

Both Ruari & Donnchadh were later used for scientific experiments by the apes which failed to yield any satisfactory results.
