Episode 26: Hal Hartley

TwitchFilm writer and Cinecast co-host Kurt Halfyard returns to the show to discuss the very divisive 90s indie filmmaker Hal Hartley.  We dissect his career as a whole, since most of his films are similar. The three of us focus at first on his early work with many claim to be Hartley's best film, TRUST, along with his award-winning epic, HENRY FOOL.  In addition, Kurt reviews Fincher's THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, Jim expresses some reservation about WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN, while Patrick is pleasantly surprised by THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU.  This is the first time in a long time that we both disagree on a director's style, so expect very different opinions all-around.  Stay tuned early next week for an upcoming bonus episode that we also recorded with Kurt.  

Our next official episode about our Favorite Films of 2011 won't drop until the 2nd week of January, but don't fret.  We have two episodes on the way this coming week, one of which is a bonus episode, and the other is the misplaced Episode 15, in which we talked about our favorite films of all time. Until next time, please send us your suggestions as well as any comments about Argento or any director we’ve discussed or will discuss on a future episode.
