On today’s show, it’s two unconventional biopics about two unconventional artists. Lady P is joined by guests, Emma Guerard and Martin Kessler, to talk about the 27th Greatest Movie of all Time, Andrei Tarkovsky’s ANDREI RUBLEV. This is the second Tarkovsky entry on the Sight and Sound Critics’ Poll (We’ve talked about MIRROR in a previous episode). But is Tarkovsky worthy of two appearance in the top 30?

Next, the panel goes from Tatars to Turners, with Mike Leigh’s 2014 feature film, MR. TURNER. 2014 saw an onslaught of biographical movies about troubled-geniuses (See: THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING and THE IMITATION GAME–Or better yet, don’t). But MR. TURNER somehow manages to stand out above the fray. The panel talks about how Leigh was able to avoid all the tired “based on a true story” tropes, while still conveying what made JMW TURNER’s work so extraordinary.

Then they put their final touches on the episode, with a few Final Notes of Positivity:

Here’s Martin’s

Here’s Emma’s
