Take your cinephilia to the next level!
The Projection Booth is the perfect next step for film enthusiasts who have seen most of the IMDb Top 250, exhausted the AFI 100 list, and are getting a little tired of the Box Office Top 10 each year. If you match any part of this description and are looking for to expand your watchlist, look no further than The Projection Booth. It's not that Unspooled, The Ringer Podcast network, or Filmspotting are not worth listening to, it's just that The Projection Booth belongs on a tier of its own. At the risk of sounding superlative, no other film podcast quite compares to the depth, curation, and dedication that Mike White brings to TPB. I started listening about 6 years ago and have yet to be underwhelmed by an episode. Mike White and his cavalcade of insightful co-hosts and interviewees never fail to interest and enlighten. Some of my favorite discoveries of the past few years have been guided by this podcast. If Mike has an episode on it, I make a point to watch it just I can fully appreciate his work on the episode. Without TPB, I would not have had the motivation to watch gems like Wake in Fright, Happy End (1966), The Swimmer, Saint Jack, Let's Scare Jessica to Death, Scarecrow, Pastoral: To Die In Country, Mr. Freedom, Cabin Boy, and of course, Black Shampoo. Even episodes covering widely-discussed movies like Psycho, A Clockwork Orange, Fight Club, or Carrie add intriguing perspectives and impressive research to the conversation. Even if I already felt like I was an armchair expert on certain films, Mike and company will always bring more to the table. Top 10 Favorite Episodes (based on quality of discussion and interviews) Black Christmas (1974) Puzzle of a Downfall Child (1970) On the Silver Globe (1988) The Cremator (1968) The Intruder (1962) The Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977) An American Carol (2008) Saint Jack (1979) The Brood (1979) All That Jazz (1979)Read full review »

I've really enjoyed the show thus far (six episodes as I write this review) and look forward to many more. The podcast is something to look forward to each week because it hits a very different spectrum of film than a lot of other shows that concentrate on a specific genre. I mean,...Read full review »

my favorite film podcast - no leg pulling - they do their research, are smart, insightful, entertaining, and not pretentious in the least.
