Episode 9 – Film Film Film, Music Music Music, Books Books Books

by | Feb 17, 2022 | 0 comments

A cornucopia of Culture Catch Up this week, with news and reviews of films we have seen in the cinema – Dune, The Power of the Dog, The French Dispatch, Mothers of the Revolution and (Beatles klaxon) the Get Back rooftop concert IMAX presentation. What have we learned since we watched it? We discuss a new book by Christine Leunens dramatising New Zealand in a time of activism. We talk about music from Rolo Tomassi, Taj Mahal and Ry Cooder (what kind of music would you play to get rid of protesters?) and vintage comedy (and one extra joke in this episode!) from Barry Cryer and the 70s shows he was involved with. The After Life and The Unlikely Murderer TV series and the multi-talented Hannah Grace Deller complete this episode.
