Cinecast #71: Brave New World
Wednesday, 25 January 2006 01:00
Sam and  Adam say I'm way better than you in Cinecast #71, ha ha.

The New World: Lyrical, elliptical, discontinuous, oblique... Sam and Adam bust out the Art Film Dictionary for their discussion of Terrence Malick's latest "The New World." A love story at the bloody dawn of American colonization, Malick's first film since 1998's "The Thin Red Line" has all the ingredients of a grand historical romance. But as he has in each of the four films that comprise his filmography since 1973's "Badlands," Malick frustrates expectations and challenges his audience. Although Adam found his bearings quicker than Sam, both came to admire the film for its accumulative power. Particularly good: Q'Orianka Kilcher as Pocahontas, who, remarkably, was only 14 when filming began.

Also on the show, Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre, and a preview of this week's Top 5 ... Movies with Narrators.

Music by Dan Bern courtesy of Messenger Records ... Cinecast theme music by Age of the Rifle.
