After guesting on several podcasts, it was finally time to set up my own. This is the first episode of the Film For Thought podcast, hosted by me, Amy Smith. In this podcast, I plan to invite a different guest each week and walk about a film of their choice. It could be a controversial, a classic, new or old. Whatever film that they want to discuss, and whatever they want to discuss about that film, that is the focus.
For the first episode, I figured it was best to start this journey myself. If you look on my Letterboxd, three of the four films are films that are seen in many people’s favourite lists (Back to the Future and La La Land are both in the top fifth most favourited films on the platform, and you cannot go wrong with a Hitchcock classic in Psycho). However, there is one film on the list that I do not get to discuss as much, but that holds a special place in my heart. That is why I chose the 2012 film Silver Linings Playbook. Have a listen below to the first episode of the podcast, and stay tuned for more episodes every second Friday.
