Ep76: Clueless w/Ryan Gilbey (in association with the BFI Comedy Genius Season)

The Cinematologists Podcast

The first episode of Season 9 sees Dario and Neil duke it out over the merits and problems of comedy, finding themselves on opposite sides for the first time in a while. They are put in this position by guest programmer Ryan Gilbey whose choice of Amy Heckerling’s 1995 comedy Clueless. New Statesman film critic Ryan joined Neil onstage at The Poly in Falmouth to introduce the film and discuss it with the audience. Prior to the event Ryan also wrote a blog over at the New Statesman about the film. Around the live discussion Neil and Dario talk about the function and role of comedy, subjectivity and form and whether it’s a genre that is more prone to becoming dated than others. They also bond over Debra Granik’s Leave No Trace and Ozu’s love of fart jokes. The episode is the second of three being produced in association with the BFI for their Comedy Genius season and the live event was also made possible thanks to Film at Falmouth, Falmouth University. Let us know which side of the debate you come down on! You can rent or buy Clueless globally from a number of different sites including Amazon, iTunes, Google, Rakuten.

Movies are the memories of our lifetime, with film critic Ryan Gilbey

Freelance Pod

This week's guest is film critic Ryan Gilbey, who's a self-confessed "creature of print," as he started out on The Independent's film desk 24 years ago, after winning a competition. He now writes for The Guardian, The Sunday Times and New Statesman. We met back in 2006 when he was my tutor on a part-time Film Journalism course at the British Film Institute in London.  Ryan has seen journalism shift from print to digital, and that's affected how filmmakers and actors approach interviews. I've come up against that in my work too, and my interview with actress Natalie Dormer for New Statesman a few weeks ago is useful reading as well:  https://www.newstatesman.com/culture/film/2018/11/i-ve-been-burnt-so-many-times-actress-natalie-dormer-sex-lies-and-being Ryan also has excellent tales about Martin Scorsese, Michael Caine, David Fincher and many more celluloid luminaries...

Each episode, creative guests tell host Suchandrika Chakrabarti how the internet has revolutionised work.
