Parallax Podcast: Stoker, Kick-Ass 2, Upstream Colour, Frances Ha & more

Strange house guests, dodgy superheroes, pigs in trippy art films, freewheeling hipsters and more in this fortnight's episode of The Parallax Podcast.

[podcast][/podcast] South Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook makes his English language debut by directing a largely Australian cast including Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and Jacki Weaver in the mystery thriller Stoker. Postmodern superheroes get another provocative workout in Kick-Ass 2. Pigs, tripping the light fantastic and ruminating on God, the universe and everything define Upstream Colour. And a fancy free Greta Gerwig stars as the eponymous character in Noah Baumbach's crowd-pleasing New York-set dramedy Frances Ha. Are they must-sees or must-misses? Critics Luke Buckmaster and Rich Haridy debate four very different films in this fortnight's episode of The Parallax Podcast. They are then joined by cult film aficionado Zak Hepburn, who brings with him a film almost too weird to explain. To listen, use the player above or subscribe to The Parallax Podcast iTunes feed.
