Episode 54: Alphaville and A Separation
This week, as the annual film festival is on-going in Berlin, Mike and Sean take a look at a pair of past winners of the prestigious Golden Bear award, Jean-Luc Godard's 1965 neo-noir Alphaville and Asghar Farhadi's highly acclaimed domestic/courtroom drama A Separation, from 2011. They also discuss Godard's career in general, pick their Essential Golden Bear Winners and complain about everything in the news, from Birth of a Nation to the Dissolve, the new Varsity Theatre and martial arts movies at the Cinerama.
