Episode 45: Melancholia Earth

Art House Sci Fi: 2011!

This week, Faults in the Vaults delves into the realm of Art house Science Fiction with a pairing of cosmically philosophical films from the year 2011. We're cheering for the destruction of Lars von Trier's Melancholia, in favor of Mike Cahill's Another Earth!

The Mailbag triggers a conversation about the offbeat and often unsettling narrative nature of romantic comedies. In This Week in Torrents, Josh presents a history lesson on a fascinating, but forgotten entertainment format, Scopitone - a music video jukebox that predated the MTV generation.

In honor of Australia Day, Josh & Mitch kick off the first installment of Where in the World Cinema?, which highlights entertaining and underrated cinematic foreign affairs, starting with Rob Sitch's quirky Aussie comedy, The Castle (1997).

Mitch goes Digging Up The Docs to spotlight 2008's ode to the wonders of genre filmmaking down under with Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild,Untold Story of Ozploitation, directed by Mark Hartley.

Also in this episode, Mitch and Josh talk remote viewing and getting Lost in London, more elbow rubbing with child stars, trips down under for Raleigh Soapery!
