Film Ireland Podcast: Episode 35 – Drop Kick a Puppy

 

Sarah Cullen and Richard Drumm address the nation and share their latest jibber jabber on some new films that people have made for you to see, including dream-chasing and drug-taking in Wild Rose,  spotting Dublin streets in Greta, and high-school yarns in 8th Grade and Book Smart.

Sarah takes a look at three Netflix films with women drinking in Wine Country, a lack of murders in Who Would you Take to a Desert Island, and alive ghosts in Suzzanna: Buried Alive.

Richard takes his seat at the High Table and discusses the endless shoot-outs of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, nonsense in the cinema at Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, and the pointlessness of Vox Lux.

And finally there’s the glass cliff of Avengers: Endgame (were they tears Richard?)

Richard and Jonathan have spent Christmas scrawling lists on the basement walls looking back over the year in film. The time has come for them to share their palaeolithicly compiled polls with the free world. And so, in this end of year podcast, our imprisoned presenters discuss their 5 top films of the year, alongside a few other categories – including worst film, best soundtrack, most wasted hype, most excruciating film of the year and the chances of freedom.

None being the answer to the last.

At the end of the recording, our hosts were told that they would not be released over the festive season – the one bit of basement tinsel was duly burnt and the door was bolted. As a result the podcast will return before the new year to give us a look back at the highs and lows of film in 2015.

Audio Interview: Tom Smith author of ‘Child 44’

tom-rob-smith-190

A politically-charged serial killer thriller set in 1953 Soviet Russia, Child 44 chronicles the crisis of conscience for secret police agent Leo Demidov [Tom Hardy], who loses status, power and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa [Noomi Rapace], as a traitor. Exiled from Moscow to a grim provincial outpost, Leo and Raisa join forces with General Mikhail Nesterov [Gary Oldman] to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys. Their quest for justice threatens a system-wide cover-up enforced by Leo’s psychopathic rival Vasili [Joel Kinnaman], who insists “There is no crime in Paradise.”

In this audio interview, author of the 2008 novel of the same name, Tom Smith, talks about the film as a detective story, the character of General Mikhail Nesterov, and working with the cast.

 

Child 44 is in currently in cinemas.
