In this week’s podcast we watch Kriv Stenders’ documentary, The Go-Betweens: Right Here. Then we read Laurent Binet’s novel The 7th Function of Language to ask, why did Roland Barthes cross the road? And finally, we laugh our red-and-yellow swimming caps off as we watch Comedy Central’s new webseries, Nippers of Dead Bird Bay.
In this week’s podcast we watch the seminal new Channel Ten drama, Sisters. Then we spread our towels out on a nice sunny spot to check out NGV Australia’s architecture exhibition, The Pool. And finally, we celebrate the cultural renaissance of the original ’90s supermodels.
Critical Attention is produced by Areej Nur, and co-presented by The Rereaders and Kill Your Darlings. In episode six, we chat to freelance writer and food critic Sonia Nair.
In this week’s very spooky Halloween podcast we watch The Untamed, Amat Escalante’s uncanny film blending social realism and body horror. Then we take a stab at the Slender Man mythos and the ‘digital campfire’ of scary storytelling. And finally we examine the past and future of Australian horror on screen, with the DVD release of Oz-horror cult classic Dark Age.
