We’re back with another shortened TUMP where we focus on what’s important… the movies. If you missed it you can go back to #201 to hear us discuss the first film of this trilogy in heavy detail (we only glanced over it in this episode). Anyways let’s talk about trilogies and French things with two fun movies…
It’s been near 3 weeks since I last posted a podcast and this one is a bit different. I was going to record a special intro explaining the shift in content, but I decided instead just to leave the audio 99% raw (with minimal clip insertions) and just let it out there.
In this episode we discuss the 1995 film Underground and the latest David Fincher film Gone Girl in excessive details. It’s been 2+ weeks since the film’s release so I feel fairly certain that for those of you out there interested in the film you would’ve seen the film already.
Am I really just to give up entirely and Wong Kar Wai? Last year I was one of the many who championed his foray into action cinema where he made drama the centerpiece with The Grandmaster and I discovered (almost like Columbus himself) the beauty that is In the Mood For Love, so where have I gone wrong?
Wong Kar Wai continues with his disjointed stories that focus on the places that people intersect in and allowing us to be enamoured by how easily the pass by one another and how wonderful it is when they decide to sit and pause and actually interact. We follow two different ‘love’ stories over the course of this film between two different police officers who have recently been left single and alone (which I believe are two not so exclusive states) as they have fleeting evenings of love with estranged women; one being a figure in the underground and the other one who helps in her cousin’s food shop.
I'm Andrew, a software developer/all around technologist by day and a film enthusiast by night. I grew up on the silly things of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The Three Amigos and Nightmare on Elm Street, so it makes perfect sense to me to have my love for film become ever expanding by the minute.
I started writing about film somewhere about 2005 on Facebook, and slowly but surely I moved on to blogging here on the internet. I've been featured with a few other publications along the way and am always looking for the opportunity to do more with this passion of mine.
So enjoy the words, listen to the many podcasts I'll do in the years to come, and let me know what you think.
