It's time to pour yourself a drink, sit back, and get ready for the preview of Season 7 of the Film & Whiskey podcast! In this episode, hosts Bob and Brad break down what's to come in their upcoming season. Over the course of 32 episodes, the hosts will review films from nine different directors, ranging from classic Hollywood icons like Charlie Chaplin and Alfred Hitchcock to modern masters like Christopher Nolan and Kathryn Bigelow.
But before they dive into the movies, they do a little bit of taste-testing with two bourbons from Green River Distillers in Owensboro, KY. Bob and Brad share their thoughts on both, discussing their tasting notes and rating them. It's like a boozy bonus round before the main event. After the bourbon tasting, the hosts discuss the structure of Season 7 and why they chose to feature mini-series of films by nine important directors. They then reveal the nine directors whose films they will be reviewing: Clint Eastwood, Billy Wilder, Kathryn Bigelow, Charlie Chaplin, Christopher Nolan, Akira Kurosawa, Stanley Kubrick, William Wyler, and Alfred Hitchcock.
As they discuss each director, they provide a sneak peek of the films they'll be reviewing. From Clint Eastwood, they will be reviewing Unforgiven, a modern Western classic that won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture. From Billy Wilder, they will be reviewing Sunset Boulevard, a darkly comedic look at the seedy underbelly of Hollywood. Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker, a gripping drama set during the Iraq War, is also on the docket.
Charlie Chaplin's masterpiece City Lights, Christopher Nolan's mind-bending thriller Memento, and Akira Kurosawa's samurai epic Seven Samurai are just a few of the other films that will be reviewed over the course of the season. The hosts also tease special bonus episodes that will focus on a specific theme or genre.
But it's not all just about the movies. Bob and Brad's dynamic banter and expert analysis make this podcast a must-listen for anyone interested in film. They offer insight into the themes and messages of each film, and provide historical context that makes the viewing experience all the more enriching.
Overall, the Season 7 Preview episode of Film & Whiskey gives listeners plenty to look forward to. With a diverse lineup of directors and films, and the hosts' expert analysis and lively banter, it promises to be a season that any film fan won't want to miss.
