Joined once again by the loveable Will Duncan, in this episode we take a look at Scorsese’s 2006 film 'The Departed'. We discuss the dichotomy between Matt Damon and Leo DiCaprio’s characters, how badass Jack Nicholson is, and whether or not we think Mark Wahlberg deserved his Oscar nomination. Our ‘Happy Slappy Podfather Quiz’ is also back this week, so stay tuned for that at the end of the episode!

"Can he risk it?" "Yes he can!" In this episode, joined by guest Will Duncan, we discuss “Bob le Flambeur” (1956). Is it more of a gangster film or a heist film? How does this French film compare stylistically to those we’ve watched from Asia, Britain and the U.S.A.? And is ‘Bob’ even a French name? (Yes, apparently.) All that and more in this week’s episode of ‘The Podfather’.

This week, joined by guest Edan Goodall, we dissect Takeshi Kitano’s “Outrage” (Japan, 2010). The three of us look at the structure of the Japanese Yakuza, the bloody violence that escalates throughout the film, and the black comedy that permeates the rather grim and convoluted tale of loyalty and betrayal. Keep an ear out too for some more insightful critique from our friend Dr. Mikel Koven.

This week we travel to Hong Kong with director John Woo and his 1992 film "Hard Boiled” - the most action-packed film we’ve watched so far. We talk well choreographed violence, running with babies, and mournful clarinet playing. How do you like your eggs?
