Rancho Notorious 4/2: Good in the mountains

From Widescreen, 5:00 pm on 10 December 2015

Dan and Kailey are joined by Graeme Beasley from sportsfreak.co.nz to talk about the Lance Armstrong biopic The Program as well as Graeme’s favourite sports movies of all time, Jackson Wood is on the line from Chicago where he’s on a movie-inspired road trip around the mid-West and our hosts enthuse about the new Paolo Sorrentino film Youth starring Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel.

 

Correction: the Boston Society of Film Critics did not snub Spotlight as it turns out – quite the opposite (see below). That misunderstanding came about from taking a joke tweet seriously which is an occupational hazard in Film Twitter.

Show notes:

Sundance 2016 feature list (inc. Taika Waititi’s Hunt for the Wilderpeople)

Los Angeles Film Critics Association awards for 2015 (evidently the ”41th Annual” which amuses Dan no end)

New York Film Critics Circle awards for 2015

Sight & Sound’s top 20 for 2015

New York Times critics pick their best of 2015
