Writer Martyn Pedler joins us this month as we look at some of the key films of March 2016, including Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson’s stop motion animated drama Anomalisa, Patricio GuzmÃ¡n’s documentary The Pearl Button, and Zack Snyder’s contention franchise-builder Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Martyn, Sophie and Lee then look at the push to stream new release films into the home, and whether we’ll soon be able to legally watch new releases from the comfort of our living room. Then Martyn takes us through the filmography of the unique and beloved American indie filmmakers, Joel and Ethan Coen.
Author and reviewer Myke Bartlett helps us see out 2011, talking the best and worst of December’s releases, comparing lists of the best films of the year, and diving into the imaginative and colourful filmography of director Terry Gilliam.
Film business factotum Rob Ruminski joins the Hyphenates to discuss the films of January 2011, and debate the filmography of wunderkind Darren Aronofsky.
