Podcast: The Red Shoes / Black Swan – Extra Film

On this week’s Extra Film, Ryan and Jay conclude their Michael Powell / Emeric Pressburger Movie Series with The Red Shoes, and they also review Black Swan!

In the final review of their latest film series, Ryan and Jay gush over one of the greatest films of all time in The Red Shoes. Known for being ahead of its time, with ravishing direction and blistering performances, Powell and Pressburger pull it off again in proving that this film is a masterpiece. While Jay loved the film a lot, Ryan makes proclamations that surprised Jay and the audience when you hear it. A great review for a great movie, what more could you ask for?

In the back half of the episode, the boys take a look at Black Swan as it enters it’s ten year anniversary. While considered one of Darren Aronofsky’s better films, and one of the best films of the year 2010, upon a look back, both co-hosts seem to be down on a film they once loved. Is it a rip-off of The Red Shoes, or is it just a decent movie that got too much praise a decade ago? Find out during their interesting review.

Also, stay tuned for the end of the show to find out what the guys will be covering for the last month of 2020!
