Podcast: Doctor Zhivago / Yes, God Yes – Extra Film
On this week’s Extra Film, Ryan and Jay continue their David Lean Movie Series with Doctor Zhivago, and then they review the sex comedy, Yes, God Yes.
After the extraordinary discussion on the classic Lawrence of Arabia the week before, the boys tackle another well-known feature in Lean’s filmography. As one of the best romance stories ever told, Doctor Zhivago wraps up Lean’s three-film run of epic storytelling with the masterful scope that generated the director to one of the best of all time. But while the film is marveled by some as a masterpiece, Ryan and Jay wouldn’t go there. While they both think it is something that should be seen, they both did have problems with it and went into great detail explaining their concerns with the final product.
After that, they transitioned to talking about the acclaimed debut for director Karen Maine. Debuting last year at SXSW (Ryan’s favorite festival), the buzz around this female coming age story about a young girl discovering sex in her religious, small Texas town has been strong. With a good story about how he saw it, Ryan really enjoyed the movie. But did Jay dig it, you will have to listen to find out.
Thanks for listening!
