Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast kicks off a full week of film commentary and interviews, beginning with a lively and insightful look at Terrence Malick's latest journey into somnambulation, Song to Song. Ian and Pat "The Über Critic" McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com admire the scenery but get lost in the weeds of Malick's patience-shattering look at the Austin music scene.
The chat covers everything from symbolism to Warhol to film criticism-as-promotion--and, yes, even some thoughts on Song to Song! There's also a bona fide plot twist, as one of the guys changes his tune (kinda) on the film.
Our promise to you: Episode 205 contains zero-percent wistful gazes and bird imagery!
