Dave Eves joins Martin Kessler for a wildfire fast conversation about filmmaker Mikhail Kalatozov. They brave the elements to marvel at I Am Cuba’s famous long takes, consider the logistics of Letter Never Sent’s forest fire, and look at how The Cranes Are Flying set the bar for self-serious Russian directors. If you survive to the end you’ll hear some strong opinions on arthouse theatre audiences, Hard to Be a God, Blumhouse horror movies, the accents of token straw-man Americans, and of course why “cinema is a lie”.
