Interstellar

In an AKOD first,  Elise Moore and David Fiore cover a film that is playing at your local cinema right now (unless you're listening to this in the future - and, if so, I hope you like corn). 

It's Christopher Nolan's Interstellar! Starring Matthew McConnaghy, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Jessica Chastain, some robots, and a whole bunch of other people who wanted to hang out with the Nolan brothers for some reason. 

As befits a current-release discussion, we get more intertextual than usual, tossing out references to fellow podcasters on Sound on Sight and /FilmCast

Join us as we struggle to justify our decision to pay $40 to see this thing in a theatre - and utterly fail to discern what room that bookshelf is in.

Please don't hesitate to contact us, either at anotherkindofdistance@gmail.com, on our Facebook Page, our Twitter account (@TimeTravelFilms), or David's Tumblr (where you'll find a bunch of images). 

We're now on all of the podcast delivery services, including iTunes, TuneIn radio and Stitcher, so please rate/review us there, if you can!

12 Monkeys (1995) and The Jacket (2005)

Hello everyone!

This evening, Elise Moore and David Fiore accompany a pair of distraught time troopers through the Foucauldian looking glass, wondering the whole time whether any of this stuff is really happening.

Our first film is Terry Gilliam's justly-celebrated 12 Monkeys (1995), starring Bruce Willis, Madeleine Stowe, and Brad Pitt. Yes, it's based on Chris Marker's La jetée, but we'll get to that one some other time, okay? 

The second item on our double-consciousness double billing was suggested by friend of the show Siskoid. We were quite impressed with The Jacket (2005), which had somehow flown under our time sensors. It was directed by John Maybury and it stars Adrien Brody, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Keira Knightly, Kris Kristofferson, Kelly Lynch, Brad Renfro, and Daniel Craig. Also, it was filmed in Ormstown, Québec, a place David knows well. For those listening at home, the final tune wasn't sung by Bryan Ferry (as we suppose on the cast), it's actually Iggy Pop! 

Please don't hesitate to contact us, either at anotherkindofdistance@gmail.com, on our Facebook Page, our Twitter account (@TimeTravelFilms), or David's Tumblr (where you'll find a bunch of images).
