Filmmaker Sean Temple returns to the podcast to talk about Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem for a Dream (2000), which played a pretty formative role for both of us. This first half of our chat was recorded way back in the bygone year of 2020, before even the US presidential election, so if you kind of get the feel that I’m a dejected soul devoid of hope, well... that’s why.
I’m releasing this special midweek episode so you can have a chance to watch Thorns, a short film created by Sean and his partner Sarah Wisner. You can watch Thorns through Valentine’s Day at the Reel Love Film Festival
