Episode Twelve: The Black Stallion and The Killing
This week, Mike and Sean talk about a pair of movies revolving around horse racing: Carroll Ballard's atmospheric 1979 family film The Black Stallion and Stanley Kubrick's innovative 1956 noir heist movie The Killing. They also pick their Essential Cinematic Animals and discuss the career of Stanley Kubrick and the retirement of Hayao Miyazaki. They also talk about an essay about nostalgia and Spielberg's Hook by Travis Vogt and bemoan the spread of the "second screen" movie experience.
