Ep223: Malick Doesn't Live Here Anymore

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast celebrates a full year of weekly shows with a long-promised look at Terence Malick's Badlands! The show comes full circle as Pat "The Über Critic" McDonald of joins Ian to talk about a movie that had been a cinematic blind-spot for both of them, and which offers a mind-expanding perspective on a filmmaker they'd taken issue with on some level. The guys also dig into the true-crime roots of Malick's story (thanks to Criterion's gorgeous, extras-packed Blu-ray), and tiptoe into the film's spiritual underpinnings.

Also, Ian talks about what reaching the consistent 52-week mark (with 93+ episodes!) means to him, and urges listeners once again to head to the Music Box Theatre this weekend for the fifth Chicago Critics Film Festival! Need more convincing? Check out festival co-founder and Chicago Film Critics Association board member Erik Childress's interview with Richard Roeper on Fox 32!

Episode 223 is an installment of true romance--a bona fide love affair between host, audience, and their art form of choice!
