Onward and Upward

Well, this is amazing: Precisely eight months (and 37 episodes) after launching Someone Else’s Movie, we got our first official review.  The AV Club’s Ben Cannon included it in yesterday’s Podmass roundup, and said some really lovely things about the show. (You have to scroll down a bit, but it’s there.)

I am frankly delighted, both by Cannon’s praise and by the ridiculous uptick in downloads that resulted — and I hope our new listeners stick around for this week’s episode, which features Toronto documentarian Michael McNamara on D.A. Pennebaker’s essential Bob Dylan portrait Dont Look Back.

The timing couldn’t be better, really: Michael’s new doc The Trick with the Gun has its Toronto premiere this Thursday at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, and Dont Look Back arrives on Blu-ray and DVD next week in a much-anticipated Criterion edition. So everybody wins, really.

Check it out! Subscribe on  iTunes, grab it on Stitcher or just download it straight from the SEMcast site. And if you’ve been listening all along, thanks for your support. There’s some really great stuff coming up, too.
