Episode #002 Manhattan w/ Cathy and Dave of The Cinemile and Shitegeist

The Woody Allen Classic Manhattan was chosen by Cathy Cullen of The Cinemile Podcast. She had never watched it before and this would prove to be a great opportunity to discuss the film before the Flixwatcher Podcast studio audience. (Ps there is no Flixwatcher Podcast studio audience 😉 ) Cathy was joined with her husband and The Cinemile co-host Dave, who also presents on the podcast “The Shitegeist”. Manhattan - Flixwatcher Podcast Everyone agreed the Manhattan is a beautiful film but the conversation kept on going back to the creeping nature of the central relationship between Woody Allen and the 17-year-old protagonist played by Mariel Hemingway.

 

The assembled Flixwatcher Crew find it hard to look past both this relationship, the fact that none of his friends seems to have a problem with the relationship and the fact that infidelity was treated in such a casual manner throughout the film. There are definite merits to Manhattan.

It contains Woody Allen’s typical brand of fast talking comedy coupled with beautiful scenery and striking images of NYC as well as the Gershwin "Rhapsody in blue

soundtrack".

Scores

Manhattan scored 2.9 overall and this was largely due to the fact that we all agreed it will look and experience would be a lot better in the cinema. It, therefore, scored low on the on the small screen score.   What do you guys think? Have you seen Manhattan? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
