I want to mention a blog I've just come across- Podthoughts- its a set of reviews of podcasts which I've found very useful. It has introduced me to two fantastic podcasts- Entitled Opinions from the University of Stanford. The second is Leftfield Cinema. Both are really very good- entitled opinions surveys with expert opinion everything from the history of Jesus to the text of Virgil to Freud. Left field Cinema is the best film podcast that I have yet come across- broadcast by a young British film maker it surveys films from Bergman, Tarkovsky, Herzog, Hitchcock and so many others in an intelligent ways. I listened to Leftfield Cinema and thought for a moment that I wished that that was what I wished my own film reviews were like.
