  1. Hi!
    After your hiatus, I was glad to listen to the latest podcast. I don’t live in Melbourne and haven’t had the chance to watch even 5% of the films you discussed but I wanted to add my two-cents regarding Moonrise Kingdom (which is the only one I have seen).
    I wholeheartedly agree with Simon on this one. Wes Anderson is one of my favorite director but his latest film was a bit disappointing. His scrupulous attention to details is fascinating and a feast for the eyes but I found the story too corny and flat to be engaging.
    The two main characters failed to give me anything other than a vague impression of cuteness. Character development is one of the things I really appreciate in Anderson’s films so, in a sense, I consider this one as his worst.
