Is director Behn Zeitlin’s acclaimed festival favourite Beasts of the Southern Wild a rousing drama or…poverty porn? Is Ruby Sparks, a rom-com from the makers of Little Miss Sunshine, the best film Woody Allen never directed?

In this episode of The Parallax Podcast, hosts Luke Buckmaster and Rich Haridy discuss these two films — now playing in cinemas — then move to the DVD shelves for a Jason Segel special. Segel stars in The Five Year Engagement and Jeff Who Lives at Home.

Zak ‘Three Colours Blood Red’ Hepburn joins the couch to discuss another weird and obscure film. This fortnight it’s Bob Clark’s 1972 Canadian horror film, Deathdream.
