Tip of the hat to Brett Goldstein's Films to be Buried With. We borrowed his structure of an interview on film based around the premise that the subject has died and is looking back on their favourite flicks.
We in turn asked one another a series of questions about the films that make us who we are.
So join us on this trip at times nostalgic, sometimes regretful, and listen as we learn a bit more about one another.
Part one of two episodes.
Making a welcome appeal to kindness and care for others, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood follows on from last year's documentary on Fred Rogers Won't You Be My Neighbor.
Impressively this fictionalised account of a journalist (Matthew Rhys) encountering Rogers when his life is at a low-point manages to combine the needs of narrative and a genuine impression of the television entertainer's life.
As a complement to Heller's film, we also discuss John Mulaney And The Sack Lunch Bunch. (available on Netflix) While the approach is not the same as Mr Rogers, the sincere interest in what children are thinking allows for the comparison.
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is out in Australia from January 23.
