We delve into the realm of cerebral confusion this week on the podcast as we discuss Clouds of Sils Maria
. The film stars Juliette Binoche as an aging actress who must confront the inevitability of time and also stars Kristen Stewart who continues her streak of excellent performances (coming off the Oscar winning Still Alice). We then take a swim in Ryan Gosling's flawed-but-ambitious Lost River, a film with a troubled post-production timeline and a lukewarm critical reception. A new Directors Series finds us tackling the films of Japanese auteur Akira Kurosawa, starting with his 1950 film Rashomon. We give our conflicting versions of the truth when discussing the film and leave it to you to sort things out. Just kidding, we leave nothing to the imagination on how we felt about the film. As always, we wrap things up with our Weekly Movie Recommendations.
