It’s time for the Scannain podcast!

This week, I join Ronan Doyle and Jay Coyle to discuss the week in film. Because Varda season never ends, both Ronan and Jay have a new film to discuss from the legendary French director. Meanwhile, in film news, we mark the passing of veteran Irish character actor Pat Laffan, study the recent funding decisions of the Broadcast Authority of Ireland, discuss the opening of applications to the WRAP fund, navigate the line-up of the Belfast Film Festival, and discuss the availability of Ross Whitaker’s Katie on Netflix.

The top ten:

  1. Cold Pursuit
  2. A Dog’s Way Home
  3. The Hole in the Ground
  4. The Aftermath
  5. Fighting With My Family
  6. How to Train Your Dragon III: The Hidden World
  7. Green Book
  8. Instant Family
  9. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part
  10. Captain Marvel

Watch! New All Is Lost Trailer

Universal sent over the latest trailer for All is Lost. Starring Robert Redford as a man adrift, the movie is written by and directed by J.C. Chandor. Chandor made a name for himself as the writer and director of Margin Call, a peek behind the curtain at the events leading up to the financial crisis. All is Lost looks to be an entirely different animal. With only one credited role (Redford as “our man”), it looks like a showcase for the leading actor’s talents.

The film has been generating good buzz (I hear it was well-received at the Galway Film Fleadh), and it looks like a fascinating old-school man-against-unforgiving-nature survival drama. Check out the trailer below.
