The Silver Emulsion Podcast: Ep. 1 – Come Drink With Me / Golden Swallow


Yep, you read that right… I’ve started a podcast! I was hesitant to do a “guy alone in a room talking to himself” podcast, but some encouraging words from an old friend made me give it a shot. And it turned out pretty OK! So give it a listen and let me know what you think.

This first episode I dive into a couple of Shaw Brothers movies I recently re-watched, Come Drink With Me and Golden Swallow.

  • Cool stuff! I definitely agree about trusting the artist. I can certainly attest to seeing movies and series that I just wasn’t ready for at the time. The one popping into my head right now, since it wasn’t that long ago that it came up, is Spring and Chaos. I never really liked it back when I first saw it, but I always felt that I wasn’t getting what it was trying to do, even when I rewatched it for review a couple years back.

    This is a bit odd, since I usually love Shoji Kawamori’s work. In fact, Spring and Chaos is probably the only one of his movies/series that I didn’t like. Now, after watching Night on the Galactic Railroad, I think I’m a lot closer to understanding it. I’ll have to go back and give it another look. Maybe I’ll finally be ready to “reckon with the art” in that film.

    (And of course there was Kimagure Orange Road, which baffled me as a teen, but left that niggling doubt in my mind that there was something special buried in there.)

    • Thanks for listening! Sounds like Spring and Chaos would be a good one to revisit. Sometimes I see movies that I’ve been wanting to see for years and years, and I end up being thankful that I never saw it, because I never would’ve gotten it in the same way. This kind of stuff really intrigues me.

  • Nice job! The podcast is informative, funny, light, loose, deep, and dope all at the same time! Great podcast right out of the gate. I’m glad that I can listen to your reviews since I can’t reed gud. Keep ’em coming!

    • Thanks, dude! If it weren’t for your encouragement it would still be one of my pipe dreams! I’m glad you enjoyed it. I’m having lots of fun doing it, so I will definitely be continuing.
