And the Winner is... 

Okay, unlike what you probably expected, this is not an Oscar prediction cast, but a long overdue rant exposing the seedy underbelly of what the Oscars really are. We'll most notably pick on the 2015 Oscars because it's the most notable example in recent memory, but we're talking the ceremony in general. 

We are, of course, speaking from a standpoint of hey, we've been following it all our lives and continue to follow them because they are influential. 

So, For Your Consideration.. The Oscars. Enjoy!

Welcome to a deadly serious edition of The Film Room

Due to recent events, we have decided to do two things. One is to cover an Iranian film, an area of film we've neglected until now. Not just any Iranian film, but Asghar Farhadi's 2011 masterpiece, A Separation! Two is to donate this month's Patreon funds to the ACLU for their efforts in the event in question (we wouldn't do this unless we absolutely knew that our supporters wouldn't mind us doing so).

This drama focuses on a couple who has separated, and the events that their separation is directly responsible for. 

So come join us as we get serious!

Up Next: Oscars!
February 7, 2017  

In this week's episode, we give lip service to a great (largely overlooked) Irish animated film, Song of the Sea. As Celtic as they come, this great film by the director of The Secret of Kells tells the story of Saoirse (not at all pronounced how it's spelled) and her brother as they search for a magic coat. As we recount the film, we'll also dive into what exactly happened to 2D theatrical animation after 2000. Come join us as we talk this magical film!
