Actor and improviser Becky Johnson, currently onstage in Toronto's Second City revue Come What Mayhem, celebrates the seductive pull of Terrence Malick's Badlands in an episode that winds through philosophy, grace and the human fascination of violence. Your genial host Norm Wilner couldn't be happier with that.

You were promised a second episode this week, so here it is! Sarah Goodman, writer-director of the brand-new Toronto indie Porch Stories, brings Kelly Reichardt's 2010 frontier drama Meek's Cutoff into the basement to unpack its ambiguities, allegories and alienation while your genial host Norm Wilner talks about knitting.

Enjoy it! And if you're in Toronto on Sunday, June 21, maybe catch the 6:45 pm screening of Porch Stories at the TIFF Bell Lightbox? Just a suggestion.

As the third season of Orphan Black winds up this Saturday, actor Ari Millen arrives to discuss Henry Bean's 2001 psychodrama The Believer - and his fascination with Ryan Gosling's breakout performance. Your genial host Norm Wilner wonders whether any parts of Gosling's character were incorporated into the Castor boys.

This is one of two full-length episodes arriving this week: Check back Thursday (June 18th) for the second! You've been good, you might as well be rewarded.

With his first feature Slow West coming to theatres and premium VOD this week, writer-director John Maclean brings Roman Polanski's 1974 masterwork Chinatown into the basement, the better to explore its murky, ugly depths. Your genial host Norm Wilner is happy to be his diving buddy.

Greetings! This week, former animator and current brilliant cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks (The Last of Us: American DreamsThe Adventures of Superhero Girl) nerds out on the old-fashioned B-movie goodness of Ron Underwood's 1990 monster mash Tremors -- and honestly, how could she not? Your genial host Norm Wilner even allowed himself to be lured out of the basement for this one.
