Well, it happened. After having my dad guest on the show last month, this month I sit down with MY MUM, and watch the greatest movie ever made - for her first viewing, it transpires. And it is EPIC.
As a result of it being Mum's first time, there are a few more pauses than usual, as I give Mum a bit of space to absorb what's happening on screen, and also more narration of the action than in some previous show. But I have to say, for someone who started the weekend asking me what a podcast was, she hits her stride in considerable style. I think this will work particularly well as a commentary track, but I'm sure those of you in podcast land will also find much that brings you joy. Amongst other things, listen out for:
- Mum's conviction that she's seen the staircase, if not the movie
- Engagement with the eereiely predictive nature of the movies politics
- Mum cracking me up beyond the point of repair on two separate occasions
- The rechristening of OCP top brass as 'corporate slimeballs', I suspect for good
And so, so much more. Enjoy this one, it's really special.
