Welcome back to The Shelf, a film review podcast about the physical media we carry with us. This week, Nic and Hannah bring you the thrilling final two episodes of season one. We’re going on break, but will be back in March for your listening pleasure!
In episode 25, Nic and Hannah watched Spike Jonze’s academy-award-winning-cinematic-film-of-the-cinema, Her. Join us as we discuss lighting, color, costumes, set designs, scores, emotions, themes, and Jackass.
