DMovies - Your platform for thought-provoking cinema

The Oscars get very messy, in our first podcast!

Three of our top film critics meet up and take a dirty look at the most subversive, thought-provoking and downright filthy Oscar nominations, as they also hazard a guess as to who should win - listen to our very first podcast right here!

In the ever-growing age of podcasts, the team at DMovies thought it only right that we get in on the fun! Starting with a deep dive into the 2018 Oscar’s, and their socio-political elements, our editor, Victor Fraga, as well as senior film critics at the site Alasdair Bayman and Jeremy Clarke, explore the animation category, gender and tokenism, anti-war movies and many more topics.

In the thought process behind the podcast, the DMovies team looked to peel away from the normal giving voice to dirty and thought-provoking cinema, as our motto. Merging the writings on the site, particularly in Richard Greenhill’s review of Darkest Hour (Joe Wright), with the vocal skills of our critics, the podcast seeks to blend the two mediums; creating something entirely original.

Further, celebrating some of the dirtier picks in this year’s nominations, such as Agnes Varda and JR’s Faces Places (pictured above), the creative process of the podcast channelled the critic’s personal opinions into an analytical discussion on a plethora of our dirty preferences.

Overall, we are all overjoyed with how the show has turned out. And don’t forget to subscribe to our MixCloud channel. We hope you enjoy and watch this space for filthier content in the future!
