In this fortnight’s episode of The Parallax Podcast reviewers Luke Buckmaster and Rich Haridy debate 007’s latest globetrotting adventure Skyfall and director Paul Thomas Anderson’s acclaimed Scientology-inspired drama The Master. Is it as good as the critics say? You’ll have to listen to find out.
On DVD they discuss Australian musical crowd-pleaser The Sapphires and veteran filmmaker William Friedkin’s Killer Joe, celebrated for Matthew McConaughey’s grisly performance as a corrupt cop.
Cult film guru Zak Hepburn joins them to continue the 007 theme but with a twist: conversation turns to the 1981 Filipino comedy/action For Your Height Only, starring 3 foot tall martial artist Weng Weng.
