Summary

Mark Kermode - the UK's pre-eminent film critic and cultural observer - delivers opinion, analysis and his trademark rants on all things cinematic. Presented with intelligence, humour and unrivalled depths of knowledge, Mark delivers a series of high profile interviews, compelling lists and must listen to reviews from the movieverse.

The Kermode On Film cinema presents a rich and varied bill of cinematic entertainment: 

  • Live In 3D at the BFI – classic recordings of Mark's monthly celebration of cinema at the British Film Institute, featuring guests, insights and features, captured exclusively for your listening pleasure.
  • 2001 Films You Must See Before You Die – a celebration of the world's greatest movies, from Hollywood blockbusters to the lost classics of independent cinema.
  • Hell's Video Store – riotous rants against the bargain bucket films and over rated movies that should be avoided at all costs.
  • Listomania – imaginative, insightful and witty lists of movie magic (or movie tragic).
  • One On Ones - Mark talks shop with the hottest directors, producers and actors of the day.
  • Strange Relations – a stripped down version of Kevin Bacon's Six Degrees. More like Kermode's Two Degrees.

Settle down with your popcorn... and welcome to Kermode On Film.

As an Audio Show - free for members - when you add Kermode on Film to your library, you'll get all 15 episodes.

Excellent - Will there be more?

Setup of this indicates that it will be an ongoing series, but there has been nothing new since Feb 2018.

Kermodetastic!

These are excellent - and the set up of the various programmes suggests many more to come. Yes please!

Good stuff. Want more.

As a long term listener of the Kermode and Mayo Five live 'Wittertainment' radio show, I was looking for a shorter, sharper fix of the Doctor's critical wisdom. He is funny, wise and an insightful commentator. Here we get a range of show formats:
* 'Listomania;' as it sounds, an exploration of various movie themed lists, including for example John Hurt's best films, Jesus films, etc.
* One on one interviews with e.g. Barry Jenkins, Duncan Jones
* Hell's Video Store (my favourite): really humdingers of rotten tomatoes
* 2001 films you must see before you die: as it sounds
* And some shows that were recorded live at the BFI, with various guests.

It's a good mix of formats, which keeps things fresh. They are bite size, 25 minutes in length, more digestible perhaps than the epic 2 hour Five live shows, and more focussed on movies.
But at 15 shows this is a short run, these formats could run for much longer. How else are those 2001 films going to be covered? So, hoping we'll get more.
