In episode 43 Adam Buxton and Zoe Jeyes return to review Zoe’s choice The Squid and the Whale. The 2005 semi-autobiographical comedy-drama written and directed by Noah Baumbach with Wes Anderson producing. The Squid and the Whale - Flixwatcher Podcast - Image 002 Now if that doesn’t float your boat you probably won’t enjoy this as much as Zoe and Helen! Set in Brooklyn in the late 80s it tells the story of two boys and their different reactions to their parent's divorce. Walt idolises their father Bernard who happens to be a total douchebag and Frank sides with his mother. Its a film about pretentiously over analysing things and features a memorable performance from Billy Baldwin (everyone’s second favorite Baldwin).

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='45'] At 81 mins runtime this film is a breeze and if you’re a fan of either Bumbag or Wes Anderson you should definitely watch this. Scoring a 4 overall from Flixwatcher and guests and 4 squids from Twitter we highly recommend it! What do you guys think? Have you seen The Squid and the Whale? What did you think?

Episode 42 sees James and Dan from a Gay and a Non Gay podcast return, this time its James’ choice, the 1990 American documentary about ballroom culture in New York City in the 1980s. Paris is Burning - Flixwatcher Podcast - Image 002   Forget what you think you know about voguing, fishy realness and drag queens - this is the ultimate history in drag culture. 80s New York City was a changing time, this documentary follows the different ‘houses’ (LaBeija, Xtravagnza, Ninja), voguing and living their, often dangerous, lives on the streets. The end result is a complex performance of race, gender, class among the African-American and Latino communities and their different identities. The documentary offers an insight into this vibrant, underground world, never judging or making assumptions about its queens.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id=44] Scoring overall 4.2 - a very high score for a documentary (despite low repeat viewing score) and there was a LOT of love for it from the Twitter reviewers. Highly recommended - even for the drag-phobics! What do you guys think? Have you seen Paris is Burning? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Welcome to episode 41! Eleanor and Jenny from Story Etc return for The Diary of a Teenage Girl, Eleanor’s choice. The Diary of a Teenage Girl - Flixwatcher Podcast - Image 004 A 2015 coming-of-age comedy-drama set in the late 70s San Francisco starring Kirsten Wiig and Bel Powley in a breakout role. It follows Minnie’s sexual awakening and creative growth as an artist. Surprisingly explicit it tackles inappropriate relationships in a refreshing, non-judgemental and unapologetic way and features great performances by all the leads. Don’t be fooled by its cover, there is humour but it’s not a quirky indie comedy, in a reversal of the manic pixie dream girl Minnie isn’t defined by saving a lost middle-aged man and she is in control of the sexual situations.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id=43] There was a lot of love for this from the guests and hosts and The Diary of a Teenage Girl scores 4.2, not quite on the Rolodex of watches but recommended!
