Anna & Rob talk Katsucon and Squeakhb
Our next franchise is a Robert Zemeckis classic. We talk about different kinds of time travel (Rob has A Theory!), history repeating itself, and how this is a very different film on later viewing.
The franchise concludes as we return to Jesse and Céline’s relationship after another 9-year hiatus. We talk a little bit about how the film could have made more sense, but a lot about the beauty of Linklater’s film-making and the way that he draws out the links with the other films.
The franchise continues with the 80-minute (check that out!) follow-up to Richard Linklater’s first film. We talk about meta-filmic cinema, how this film is like Berthold Brecht crossed with Arthur Miller, and why the film is a reflection on the process of creating memories.
This week we embark on a new franchise, spending time with the first film in Richard Linklater’s trilogy. We talk about the passage of time, why this might have made a better play than a movie, and how the film might just be a metaphor for the whole industry.
