For this episode The Cinematologists are delighted to announce their first ever Podcast Crossover Event/Episode. As big fans of the wonderful Silver Screen Video podcast, hosted by Jacob and Jonathan, Neil and Dario were delighted when they agreed to do a collaborative episode, even more delighted when it was agreed that three films by the brilliant Australian director Andrew Dominik would be the focus ,and, yet more delighted by the result - a far-ranging and hugely fun conversation between Neil, Dario, Jacob and Jonathan on Chopper (2000) starring Eric Bana in a career-defining turn and Dominik’s two exemplary dissections of American myth (and Brad Pitt collaborations), The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007) and Killing Them Softly (2012). This is the longest episode for a while, but boy gee whizz is it a good ‘un.
