TGB Episode 39: To Film Or Not To Film (Guest: James Marsh)

December 8, 2010

The Golden Briefcase

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by fellow Hong Kong-based critic James Marsh from Twitch Film to discuss their latest picks of the week, go over the newest DVD & Blu-Ray releases (including Christopher Nolan's Inception!), talk about the highly controversial trailer for Jodie Foster's The Beaver with Mel Gibson, respond to a recent listener voicemail and so much more! The main topic of the night was William Shakespeare's plays adapted into films, in honor of Julie Taymor's The Tempest (watch the trailer) hitting limited theaters this Friday. Another stellar episode - listen below!

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 7:30PM (PST). You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!
