The Simon and Jo Film Show: 30/05/2010

The Simon and Jo show comes to you this week from sunny South London. We’re at the BFI Southbank to check out Palme D’or winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul (Jo to his buddies) installation ‘Phantoms of Nabua’, running from 14th May until 3rd July 2010. Jo (from Simon and Jo) has seen American: The Bill Hicks Story and gives his assessment on the comedy legend.

There’s plenty of chat on the new releases and chart with a dash of casting news, including details of Woody Allens latest. Simon continues his Coen odyssey by giving his opinion on The Man Who Wasn’t There while Jo starts on a Lindsay Lohan journey, discussing how Mean Girls are.

Finally there’s a round up of some of the latest trailers including a sexy straight to DVD thing, Solitary Man, The Brothers Bloom and Love Ranch.

The music is from Bill Hicks Arizona Bay which combines comedy and music to potent effect.

  1. THE BROTHERS BLOOM were shot in my hometown :)

  2. Many, many thanks for the shout-out this week, guys--I need all the help I can get sometimes.

    I really enjoyed your review of the Bill Hicks movie and will definitely have to seek this out should it play in my neck of the swamp. Though I should warn you--there are a good many Hicks fans who might take issue with your comparing him to Denis Leary, since quite a few of them are convinced that Leary cribbed shamelessly Hicks' material.

    Oh, and I think you're going to enjoy Crimes and Misdemeanors. It's the last Woody Allen film I can honestly say I truly enjoyed.
