Grace Glowicki on Love



Grace Glowicki — who co-stars in Cardinals this Friday at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto, and who’ll be back at TIFF in September with Roney’s short film Glitter’s Wild Women — sits down to talk about Love, and how its graphic sex scenes are Gaspar Noe’s gateway to honesty. Your genial host Norm Wilner would like you to know that this episode features explicit discussions of sexual content, but we’re all adults here.


Barry Stevens on 2001: A Space Odyssey



Documentary filmmaker Barry Stevens is in the studio to mark the 50th anniversary of 2001: A Space Odyssey just as Stanley Kubrick’s visionary masterwork about humanity’s place in the universe makes its IMAX 70mm debut. Your genial host Norm Wilner has a theory about the monolith he’s been sitting on for quite some time.


Tamara Podemski on The Band’s Visit



Tamara Podemski, currently starring in the new thriller Never Saw It Coming, is here to confess her love for The Band’s Visit, Eran Kolirin’s 2007 charmer that somehow became a Broadway smash. Your genial host Norm Wilner has to be honest: He loves it too.


Corey Mintz on Big Night



Now that friend of the show Corey Mintz is a podcaster himself — check out his new series Taste Buds on the Canadaland network! — he makes a triumphant return to celebrate Big Night, Stanley Tucci and Campbell Scott’s wonderful 1996 movie about brothers, business, art, food and Louis Prima. Your genial host Norm Wilner bought a red-and-white checkered tablecloth just for the occasion.


Randall Okita on Kids



Filmmaker Randall Okita — whose first feature The Lockpicker arrives on iTunes later this month following screenings across Canada — is in the studio to talk about Kids, Larry Clark’s 1995 indie about oversexed youth that Harvey Weinstein turned into an artistic cause celebre. Your genial host Norm Wilner has some thoughts about this.
