Richard Linklater on the Making of “Boyhood”: VICE Meets.

Vice not only has some kick ass documentaries (some great, some bizarre, some terrible, but always kick ass), but also some in-depth discussions with interesting people about their latest projects. This series of interviews used to be called the VICE Podcast, but it was on YouTube, later it was turned into an inconsistent podcast that hasn’t been updated in months. For shame.

This is one of Linklater’s two better interviews on his latest movie. The other one, unsurprisingly is an episode of NPR’s Fresh Air.  Both contain some minor spoilers. And by minor I mean insignificant.

Episode 152 - Inside Llewyn Davis

009 - 2014.01.19

Can an unlikeable protagonist make a good movie? Are the Coen Brothers the quintessential American filmmakers?,  Is Fredo a good man? this and more questions will be answered in this episode of Film Yarn.

Monique Jimenez tells us to stay away from people like Llewyn, and Xavier Mendes lectures us on 60’s folk and actors singing for movies.

Spike Jonze’s I’m Here (2010)

We talked about this on the latest episode of the podcast, and I said I would put it on the website so here it is. Stars Andrew Garfield as a cute tower-computer-headed-robot. This movie was made for Absolut Vodka.
