This week’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie is really special, in more ways than one. Regular listeners know that Tatiana Maslany is basically the reason the podcast exists — it was a digression about Under the Skin during a phone interview with her about Cas and Dylan that ultimately led me to the concept. (Well, that and a subsequent conversation with Seymour Bernstein.)
Anyway, it took two years — she’s busy and all — but I finally got her for the podcast, along with her partner Tom Cullen, with whom she co-stars in Joey Klein’s crushingly intimate The Other Half , which comes to VOD in Canada today and arrives in American theatrical release on Friday.
They picked There Will Be Blood, Paul Thomas Anderson’s epic 2007 study of a ferocious oil baron carving his way across America in the early decades of the 20th century. It’s a hell of a movie, and a hell of an episode — we got all hopped up on sugar and jumped right into Daniel Day-Lewis impressions, basically. It was as good a conversation as I’ve ever had for this show, and almost exactly two years to the day after launching the podcast I’m delighted to be able to share it with you.
