Cinema Eclectica 21 – Hey, Hey – Man Tears!

Cinema Eclectica 21 – Hey, Hey – Man Tears!

It’s a slow news week because Cannes has rolled around again, but we give it the old college try anyway.

In “Off the Shelf” we discuss Fritz Lang’s silent classic Frau Im Mond before discovering the strange wonders of  Second Run’s Polish Cinema Collection Volume 3. We also try to navigate Juno Mak’s conflicted and slightly confusing Rigor Mortis, but things definitively head to weirdsville in our Minority Report – Sion Sono’s baffling Bollywood-style Hip-Hop Yakuza musical Tokyo Tribe.

We round things off with our Film of the Week – Brad Bird’s science fiction yarn Tommorrowland: A World Beyond – and we nearly say nice things about it.

Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to hide in the cupboard before they make us feel the emotions.

For more reviews and discussion, tune into The Geek Show LIVE every Monday from 6 to 8 pm (GMT), and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and MixCloud for all of our latest shows. You can also listen to us on the go by downloading the MixCloud app (which is free), for Android and iOS.


Co-founder of The Geek Show Podcast Network. Chief Editor and Executive Producer of, and tangentially overburdened host/co-presenter of several shows on the network. When I'm not engaged in production, journalistic shenanigans or the quagmire that is media criticism I watch movies, interesting TV shows and anime, I also enjoy the arts (you know, classical music and stuff), write many, many things, play and collect a lot of video games, read lots of manga, comics and books, and generally enjoy wallowing in the mass of entertainment media like a hippo in mud. I can also cook.

Let us know what you think ...
