Scannain Podcast - #36 - 2018

September 28, 2018 @ 9:44 am

It's time for the latest Scannain podcast!

This week, host Darren Mooney joins Jason Coyle, Grace Duffy, and Ronan Doyle to discuss the week in film. As usual, we talk about the top ten and the new releases, as well as what we've watched this week. In this episode, we discuss the appeal of Tony Scott's (arguably) underrated late film Domino, which Jay claims as a cinematic classic and Ronan watched while hung over. We talk about the true horror lurking in Ghost Stories. We debate whether Karyn Kusama's The Invitation is a Sacha Baron Cohen show as a horror movie.

We also talk about the films that the "young ones" will be watching as part of the back-to-school programme at the Irish Film Institute, the ongoing Dublin Festival of History and the first look deal between Element Pictures and Fox Searchlight that speaks to the viability of Irish film as award fare.

In terms of the top ten, there's in-depth discussions of both Black '47 and The Little Stranger, all four panelists having seen those films.
