Best Worst Podcast, Episode One

Welcome to Best Worst Podcast, covering the best and worst of cinema. Aside from referencing Michael Stephenson’s 2009 Troll 2 phenomena documentary Best Worst Movie the podcast name refers to our love of, and interest in discussing, both the very best of challenging auteurist cinema and the very worst of Z-grade trash!

In this first episode, your hosts Jacob and Doug try to figure out what the hell they’re doing then proceed with covering the highlights of the New Zealand International Film Festival’s 2011 programme, with a brief digression to explain the enigmatic “Circle of Quality.”

NZIFF 2011 films discussed: AttenbergI Saw The DevilKid With A BikeTabloid (pictured above), and many, many more.
