Though we chatted for more than an hour about this idea and other directors who may or may not have become a parody of themselves (see our Malick feature for more on that), this topic is grand, complex, ever-evolving and expanding with near endless layers and varied sub-topics to broach. It's an ongoing discussion, so after you give it a listen, don't forget to chime in with your thoughts in the comments section.
Lastly, a little house cleaning: of course you can stream the podcast below, but you can also download as well via SoundCloud for use on mobile devices. Also, we were forced to alter the cut of this podcast slightly because of copyright issues with certain music titles. While I'm happy with the version below, it's not my original vision, and thus if you'd like to hear the "Editor's Cut," which I prefer, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you an mp3 of that edit. Thanks for listening!
