Our main focus is the madness of Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans which we were fortunate enough to see in March and is just now getting a UK release. It's suitably surreal stuff from Werner Herzog.
There's the latest London box office and a rundown of the latest releases before we launch into a Woody Allen debate. Simon is the defence, having just seen Play it Again, Sam and Jo prosecutes from a position of not wanting to watch any Woody films ever again. Sparks fly! Finally there's trailer talk with a focus on clips from films that are showing in Cannes and a quick prediction on who might win the Palme D'or. Turns out we're both wrong, congratulations go to Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives. Crikey.
Shoutouts to Nick on Random Ramblings of a Demented Doorknob and the philosophising of The Kid in the Front Row, and obviously the link for our Lammy Nomination...
Music is from Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans and Casablanca (which is a nod to Play it Again, Sam).
