Film diaries

From Widescreen, 5:56 pm on 9 August 2016

The publication of Dad Goes to the Movies (1941) – Les Tweedie’s World Ward II diaries including all the films he saw that year – prompted Dan Slevin to think about all the ways we film buffs like to record our film watching. He spoke to Jim Mora (sitting in for Jesse Mulligan) this afternoon.


Other films, books, shows, sites, etc. discussed

Dan’s website, Funerals & Snakes, featuring several years of reviews including everything released commercially in New Zealand between 2006 and 2012.
