Recently, Chicago Tribune film critic Michael Phillips made some provocative comments about Lars von Trier on the Filmspotting podcast, calling him a perpetual 14-year-old, while still praising him highly. With The Five Obstructions and Breaking The Waves getting new home-video releases, and both volumes of Nymphomaniac still sparking debate, it seemed like a good time to have Michael join us on the podcast to talk over von Trier’s peculiar obsessions and fascinating career. We also preview our Summer Movie Preview with a quick-hit look at some of the summer films we’re most looking forward to. As always, we wrap with our competitive-recommendation segment, 30 Seconds To Sell. Sadly, no game this week, due to technical difficulties during taping, but that just gives us more time for our favorite thing: Talking about films and filmmakers.
