25 – The Red Turtle

Our patient, deliberate conversation closely mirrors the feeling of The Red Turtle, Studio Ghibli’s wordless, Oscar-nominated fable. We consider aesthetics, allegory, gender representation and subversion of genre amongst other issues this strange, delicate film raises. Also discussed are the experiences of cinema screenings and home viewing, and José finds time to get in another swipe at The Disaster Artist.

With José Arroyo of First Impressions and Michael Glass of Writing About Film.
