On Second Thought

This week’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie is an interesting one, as writer and producer Ian Carpenter brings Harmony Korine’s Gummo onto the podcast … and, in revisiting it, discovers that the film that rocked his world a quarter-century ago doesn’t hold up quite as well as he thought it would.

This comes up every now and then when we revisit movies that meant something to us when we were younger– we change while the films don’t, so what does that say? — but I’ve never had the chance to go through it with a guest, and Ian was totally up for the conversation. I think you’ll enjoy listening.

And then you can get onto catching up with last week’s Shiny Things, where I checked out the new Blu-ray editions of Aftersun and Living and flew myself back to childhood with Warner’s 4K box of the Christopher Reeve Superman cycle. Are you a subscriber? No? What’s wrong with you? Jeez.
