This is a busy episode so comes with a “wide load” sticker on the back. Martin walks down the more arty path, talking about a classic Bernardo Bertolucci, The Conformist, before keeping up the Italian end by frankly, gushing about The Great Beauty, the Oscar winner for Best Foreign Film this year. Surely the contemporary equivalent of Fellini’s La Dolce Vita. Rounding off things is The Time Being, starring Wes Bentley and his very serious eyes and a star turn from Frank Langella.
Asim and Ahmed bring things bang up to date with talk of TV and blockbusters. Dancing around the podcast they talk about Cuban Fury (Nick Frost and Rashida Jones) before moving on to Graceland and Gang Related. Tom Cruise’s latest action blockbuster Edge of Tomorrow is reviewed by Asim, before we round things off with a battle royale: Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 sci-fi (ish) satire and all round cult classic, Robocop versus the 2014 version by Jose Padilha.
