The Film Room Austin and Albert talk, often with friends, about our love of and taste in films good and bad. We are The Film Room!

Hello hello and welcome!

This episode is very special because - while it is not our first attempt - it is our most successful attempt at recording in person! Al went down to Little Rock to see Austin and Amanda for the first time since their wedding, and while they were all together, they recorded a 2-hour-long live episode!

This is basically a recorded version of Austin's Yearbook column, where we focus on the magical land that was 10 years ago. We do a broad sweep of ALL the major releases that year. Hear us dig up long-forgotten treasures, wax on the films we still love, and on films we don't love so well.

Enjoy this rare live cast! (It'll happen again in July.)

Editing! If done right, it's not something we actively think about while watching a film, but yet it can make or break the spell it casts over the audience. Who's behind this essential bit of film wizardry? The editor, of course!

We are thrilled to have with us this week John Wick editor Elisabet Ronalds, all the way from Iceland! We talk on a range of topics from the editing process, John Wick, the collaborative nature of film, favorite films, and much more! Join us!

Also be sure to check out Elisabet's next film, The Coldest City!

You, too, can join the discussion!
