The Movie Club Podcast is an irregular roundtable podcast where we select two movies to dissect, analyze and discuss with a group of fellow movie bloggers and film fans.
After a three month break, we are finally ready to release the latest episode of The Movie Club Podcast into the wild. This time around we have once again reconvened with our friends from Row Three and Where The Long Tail Ends to talk about two movies that feature “stories within a story”… or something like that. The films in question are Tarsem’s The Fall and Wojciech Has’ The Saragossa Manuscript.
The latter is a little bit tricky to track down, but it’s important to note that we watched the three-hour version, not one of the edited cuts. Either way, the surreal visions presented by both films make for some spirited discussion; we hope you’ll listen and then jump in with your own comments. Download the new episode and cast your vote for an upcoming episode over at MovieClubPodcast.com. Note: Our next episode will be an animated double bill featuring Isao Takahata’s Grave of the Fireflies and Ralph Bakshi’s Wizards.
