There’s a Place for Us

This week on Someone Else’s Movie, I finally get to tell everyone who else I talked to on the New York recording trip last summer: It was Alex Ross Perry, writer-director of last year’s terrific Listen Up Philip and this year’s entirely unknown quantity Queen of Earth, which is getting its Canadian premiere in Toronto next Tuesday night at The Royal.

Alex picked Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere, which is a terrific choice both for his own sensibility and for the show; this is a movie that, just five years after its release, is already at risk of being forgotten despite being kind of excellent.

When I pitch people on the podcast, I tell them it’s a vehicle for illumination and advocacy — and going forward, I’ll be using this episode as an example.

It’s available right now from all the usual sources: iTunes,  Stitcherdirect download. Please do enjoy it.
