Emphatic for the cinematic!

Film critic Brett Michel (The Boston Phoenix and the Boston Herald) joins Steve Head and John Black to discuss J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg's nostalgic fantasy adventure Super 8. They also attempt to figure out Terrence Malick's Palme d'Or winner The Tree of Life, which is now playing at The Coolidge Corner Theater and Kendal Square.

For our Picks of the Week, Steve explain why United Artists' Harry in Your Pocket (1973), starring James Coburn and Michael Sarrazin, is worth checking out. And John recommends Kino International's release of five new films from documentarian Nicolas Philibert, including Louvre City (1990), In the Land of the Deaf (1992), and Every Little Thing (1997).

This episode was recorded at Panera Bread, across the street from the Coolidge Corner Theater in Brookline, MA. As always, they tried to find a quite spot to record. Apologies for any obtrusive background noise.
