Episode 68: Cillian Murphy

Did you know that Cillian Murphy used to be in a band that were once offered a 5 album record deal? Well you will hear him talk about that, but also how music has been a constant throughout his career, most notably in the creative way contemporary music has been used in the hugely successful TV series, Peaky Blinders. A real music fan who also adds music festival curator to his CV, I could have talked to Cillian for hours.

Episode 66: Valerie Faris & Jonathan Dayton

Two wonderfully talented people who are very easy to talk to. Val and Jon very kindly gave up their time twice to allow us to record the podcast. Their new film, Battle of The Sexes, is glorious with important messages, fun with fantastic performances. We also talked about their break out movie, the phenomenally memorable Little Miss Sunshine and we had a surprise visit from Elizabeth Shue who plays Priscilla Riggs in the film. I hope you enjoy.

It took 60 odd episodes for us to have a massive technical failure. I can’t thanks Val & Jon enough for giving us a second go at taking to them about their amazing work. I love them for this and for so many other things. Full ep coming soon.

Episode 65: Paul McGuigan

Paul McGuigan has made the most wonderful film in ‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool.’ He’s a director with incredible versatility, in both film and TV. His taste and collaboration with music in his work is top class. I loved talking with Paul.

Episode 64: Yorgos Lanthimos

I’d go so far as to say that Yorgos Lanthimos has almost created his own genre of film! Sweeping statement I know but one that I fully believe to be true. Such an exciting talent and a wonderful generous man to talk to. I hope you enjoy this weeks episode. And go see The Killing Of A Sacred Deer, it’s fantastic.

I love this mans film making. The Lobster was wonderful. Ahead of a brand new episode with Yorgos here he is reminded about a particular musical moment from The Lobster.

Episode 63: Luca Guadagnino

Call Me By Your Name will win awards next year! It’s beautiful, tender, funny and Luca Guadagnino I think, has made one of the most stunning and honest love stories ever. I hope i’ve done some justice in trying to get to the heart of the importance of music in his films, as i’m such a huge fan.
