The Film Comment Podcast: The Rep Report #5
Love is, of course, in the air, and with most new release schedules in hibernation, February is a great time for checking out the repertory scene. Guests Nellie Killian (Film Comment contributing editor and independent programmer) and Jon Dieringer (founder of Screen Slate) join FC Editor-in-Chief Nicolas Rapold to run down the best rep screenings on offer around New York. First up are two series at Anthology Film Archives: the annual “Valentine’s Day Massacre”—featuring mainstays Albert Brooks’s Modern Romance and Maurice Pialat’s We Won’t Grow Old Together—and “In-Person Reenactment,” featuring Martha Coolidge’s Not a Pretty Picture. The three also discuss new documentaries about outsider musicians, the recently wrapped-up Film Comment Selects series, the Marlon Riggs series at BAM, and Claire Simon’s The Competition, among others.
