Noel Clarke on Pulp Fiction



At TIFF for the North American premiere of his new film BrOTHERHOOD, actor, screenwriter and director Noel Clarke goes deep on Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 indie blockbuster Pulp Fiction – the film that changed the face of American cinema, made Samuel L. Jackson a movie star and made John Travolta great again. Your genial host Norm Wilner has no complaints about this.


Kristin Wallace on Thelma and Louise



Actor-writer-producer Kristin Wallace — whose new film Moments of Clarity opens theatrically in Toronto this Friday — takes advantage of the post-TIFF lull to revisit Ridley Scott’s 1991 buddy movie Thelma & Louise. Your genial host Norm Wilner is riding shotgun.


Alice Lowe on Labyrinth



She’s bringing her directorial debut Prevenge from Venice to TIFF, but Alice Lowe will always have a special place in her heart for Jim Henson’s Labyrinth — and for David Bowie’s weirdly sexy Goblin King. In an episode recorded earlier this year in London, she discusses all of that and more as your genial host Norm Wilner tries to distract a cranky baby.


Daniel MacIvor on Sunday Bloody Sunday



As he prepares for the world premiere of his new movie Weirdos at TIFF this Friday, screenwriter (and actor, and director, and playwright, and living legend) Daniel MacIvor stops in to talk about Sunday Bloody Sunday, John Schlesinger’s quietly searing 1971 drama starring Peter Finch, Glenda Jackson and Murray Head as a man, a woman and the lover they share. Your genial host Norm Wilner actually made tea for this one.
