Cinecast #26: March To The Beat
Friday, 05 August 2005 01:00
Mom, can we  listen to Cinecast #26 now? Please!?

Driven into the arthouse last weekend thanks to uninspiring mainstream releases, your Cinecast co-hosts took the opportunity to catch a couple of this summer's less-hyped movies. Adam took his three year-old son to see the surprise hit of the summer, the National Geographic documentary March of the Penguins, while Sam threw on a beret and took himself to see The Beat That My Heart Skipped, French director Jacques Audiard's remake of the 1978 American film "Fingers." According to Sam, Audiard's remake is worth seeking out -- and a big improvement over writer/director James Toback's cult classic original. Adam was moved by "Penguins," and his emotional evocation of the egg-passing ritual should earn him the podcasting equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize.

Also on the show, Cinecast listeners do our dirty work and review "Stealth," "Sky High" and "Must Love Dogs." Plus, our Overlooked DVD Picks of the Week and the Top 5 Movies of the Year (So Far).

Music by Kelly Hogan courtesy of Bloodshot Records ... additional music by Haywood Yards ... Cinecast theme music by Age of the Rifle.
