    Nice second podcast. Personally, I think the tighter focus makes it more interesting to listen to. However having a partner might help as tangents seem more natural in a conversation.

    I’m impressed with your knowledge of film and will now keep an eye out for Jean Pierre Melville’s films. As for sequelitis, I think now that movies actually have to compete with televised content, I believe movie executives think that franchises are one way of doing it. (the other being the horrible adoption of 3D into films). However continuing character arcs through years rather than weeks is still a tough feat to continue successfully, But as long as audiences keep coming, they keep doing them.

    Also have to mention that Blow Out is one of my favorite DePalma flicks. It’s movies like this that made me anticipate Lithgow in other appearances such as Dexter (did I say too much?). As for Nancy Allen, I guess it always helps when you’re married to the director. As for use of film editing as a plot element in a movie, you could watch “Modern Romance” with Albert Brooks. It’s an okay comedy but the movie-related bits are funny. If anything you could find clips of them on YouTube.

    Anyway, good second effort. Hopefully with a podcast partner, the third time will be the charm.
