Special Episode - The 50th New York Film Festival #2 (Jaimie Christley)

            Many of the films at this year's New York Film Festival are filled with various cinematic references that can go over Peter's head without him ever realizing, so he brings in Slant Magazine contributor Jaime Christley to help him parse through some of this week's fascinating films. The two dig into the big Hollywood opener Life of Pi from Ang Lee, as well as the extreme art house pleasures of new films from directors like Raúl Ruiz,  Miguel Gomes, and the Taviani Brothers.  Plus, documentaries on conspiracy theorists deconstructing Kubrick's The Shining, and another one about fishing in the Atlantic, but from the perspective from the fish.
