The Last Thing I Saw

Welcome to The Last Thing I Saw, a podcast where we reach out to friends to talk about what we’ve been watching. It’s as simple as that. Joining Nicolas Rapold this time is culture critic Sheila O’Malley. Sheila writes about movies for the Roger Ebert site and the Criterion Collection, and keeps a terrific blog called The Sheila Variations. Her delightful column Present Tense includes entries ranging from the Miracle on Ice to "back-ting" to Nick Nolte to Frank O'Hara's movie love. We began our conversation by catching up with the movie version of Hamilton, which brought us to 8 Mile, the director Curtis Hanson, and the joys of the Jackass movies and the show Nathan for You. Then we went on a former Soviet bloc tour with two documentaries, Red Penguins and Out of the Present, and the Romanian puzzler Infinite Football. Also mentioned: Motel Life, Red Army, and American Movie.
