Alfonso Cuaron talks ROMA with the ReelBlend hosts

Powered by RedCircle

The ReelBlend podcast has a handful of Patron Saints. Steven Spielberg. Martin Scorsese. Damien Chazelle. Christopher Nolan. But never before has one of the Patron Saints of ReelBlend joined us on an actual episode.

Until this week.

In support of his Golden Globe-winning masterpiece, Roma, Alfonso Cuarón sat down with ReelBlend co-hosts Kevin McCarthy, Jake Hamilton and Sean O'Connell to discuss his filmmaking process, the need to see Roma more than once, and the Gravity nod that's included in the film. The entire interview is part of this week's new ReelBlend, so give the episode a listen.

Since we are coming off of Sunday's Golden Globes, the guys spend the bulk of the show discussing the results, and how they impact the ongoing Oscar marathon. They analyze the surprise win for Glenn Close over Lady Gaga, the momentum shifts for Bohemian Rhapsody and Green Book, and Kevin's pure joy that First Man got recognized for its score.

Speaking of Kevin, he's recording his part of this week's podcast from New Zealand. Earlier, Jake talked about a trip he took to WETA on behalf of Alita: Battle Angel. This week, Kevin gets to do all of that, including being "directed" in a fight sequence by Robert Rodriguez. You can bet there will be Geeking Out.

As for Geeking Out, the guys did plenty of that while interviewing Alfonso Cuarón for Roma. Have you watched that movie yet? It's on Netflix now, so what are you waiting for?
