MINISODE: CIFF 2016 Wrap-Up: The Handmaiden, Christine, The Eagle Huntress and More / Interview with Kaleidoscope’s Rupert Jones

CIFF 2016

It’s our second minisode covering the Chicago International Film Festival! Clint tells Jared about the latter batch of films he caught at CIFF 2016, including Park Chan-wook’s latest The Handmaiden.* Other films include the Jim O’Heir dark comedy Middle Man; Rebecca Hall’s great turn as Christine Chubbuck in the drama Christine; and the Disney documentary The Eagle Huntress! We also talk about the festival as a whole, and what it means for us to be able to cover it in the way we do.

Also, Clint sits down for an interview with Kaleidoscope writer/director Rupert Jones! There, they talk about working with his brother Toby Jones, and the best ways to pull off psychological horror.

Check out the podcast below, and let us know what you think! Should we do more festival coverage like this? We want to hear from you!
