Welcome to the 38th episode of The Cinefessions Podcast! Today, Branden, Ashe, and Marc kick-off our next 9-episode arc with the start of The Tarantinothon. Along with a review of Reservoir Dogs (1992), we discuss the first episode of Black Mirror.
You can follow along with The Tarantinothon in multiple ways. Many of Tarantino’s films can be found streaming on Netflix, and the ones that aren’t are usually picked up on the cheap on Amazon. We highly recommend you watch the film before you listen to the podcast as there will be spoilers. You can also follow along with Black Mirror on Netflix Instant Queue. For our Canadien listeners, Black Mirror can be found on ShoMi.com (there is an Xbox One and Playstation 4 app available).
Next week, we will review Pulp Fiction (1994) and the second episode of Black Mirror.
Note that The Tarantinothon episodes are filled with major spoilers, and we highly recommend that you watch the films before listening to the show if you do not want the films (and Black Mirror episodes) spoiled for you. These podcasts also contain adult language.

Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
