Shot/Reverse Shot: 113 - Junun/High Concept

We double-up this episode by devoting the first half to a discussion of Paul Thomas Anderson's new documentary, Junun, and the significance of it debuting on the online streaming service MUBI, then we spend the second half talking about the idea of "High Concept" filmmaking. We also talk about the Hail Caesar! trailer, why neither Matt or I particularly like Hitchcock's Rope, and talk about some of the irresponsible reporting surrounding the suicide of Chantal Akerman.
