In the spirit of the 2015 LA Femme Film Festival, Richard and Greg celebrate, support (and occasionally critique) three films directed by women.
You can read more about the Festival at www.lafemme.org

Richard and Greg have a Big Night In. They watch three films with “big” in the title and go for a big finish. Which is mighty big of them.
The Big Chill (1983) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-06-chill
The Big Lebowski (1998) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-06-lebowski
Big Fish (2003) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-06-fish
Richard takes Greg right back to a silent classic. They then review two films about multiple perspectives – or is that two perspectives on multiple films?
Modern Times (1936) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-05-modern
Lantana (2001) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-05-lantana
Rashomon (1950) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-05-rashomon
Once Greg gets past his shock that ANYONE over the age of 30 could NOT have seen “The Sound of Music”, he and Richard review three apparently unrelated films.
Only to discover that there’s an accidental theme linking them all…
Cabaret (1972) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-04-cabaret
The Sound of Music (1965) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-04-music
Dr Strangelove (1964) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-04-strangelove
From the gritty realism of post-war Rome to a light caper film set in Paris.
And something halfway between – a grim Orwellian dystopia which our hero seeks to escape through Pythonesque flights of fancy.
Brazil (1985) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-03-brazil
Bicycle Thieves (1948) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-03-bicycle
Charade (1963) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-03-charade
Because everyone has to do a Christmas Special.
Richard and Greg each provide their seasonal Christmas film for the other’s premiere viewing – respectfully and with due consideration of feelings (perhaps). And then Richard has his first experience of a bona fide Christmas classic.
Scrooged (1988) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-xmas-scrooged
Bad Santa (2003) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-xmas-santa
It’s A Wonderful Life (1946) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-xmas-wonder
Richard and Greg each catch up on a seminal Hitchcock film, to get past their fears of heights and showers. Then they revisit a feel-good romantic comedy to lighten the mood.
Vertigo (1958) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-02-vertigo
Psycho (1960) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-02-psycho
Love Actually (2003) http://tinyurl.com/fmfw-01-02-actually
Two friends talk about films old and new (but mostly old). Richard Di Gregorio is an award-winning filmmaker who also happens to watch films. Greg Ralph is a film watcher who also happens to...well, watch films. Together they are a couple of guys who love the movies. This podcast invites you to share that love and go back to favourite films - or those you never got round to seeing (like them).
