Double Indemnity is THE film noir: the film noir that most people think about when they picture the genre. This week, Stephanie and Jimmy discuss twisted relationships, murder, and Barbara Stanwyck's fringe.
Stephanie is still too busy and doesn't have time to act as referee as Michelle and Jimmy lock horns over Kafka's The Metamorphosis (or, as Steph calls it, "the bug episode"). Join Michelle and Jimmy as they politely discuss the enduring appeal, complexities and ambiguities of Kafka's seminal text, before descending into an inexplicably long debate about the source of artistry in music.
Stephanie is too busy and does not want to discuss Jimmy's idea for this week's podcast (aka the puppet episode), so in the spirit of resistance, Jimmy has taken control of the mic and invited the Queen of Fantasy (aka Dr Kirstin Mills) to discuss the new Netflix series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Join them as they discuss duality, puppetry, world-building, and Podling rights.
In a proud From the Lighthouse tradition, Stephanie and Michelle give their verdict on the best books of 2019.
The new Netflix adaptation has divided audiences: some love it, some hate it. This week, Stephanie and Kirstin give their verdict (spoiler: they neither loved nor hated it!)
The first in a new series on film noir, Stephanie and Jimmy discuss Otto Preminger's 1944 film Laura. Laura is both an excellent novel by Vera Caspary and a true classic of film noir. We discuss Gene Tierney's gorgeousness, boring detectives, and whether you should receive guests sitting in the bath.
