Jill and Aaron spend New Year’s Eve reflecting on the year of 2021, including the big news of Jill joining the show. We talk about favorite 2021 episodes and also hint at what to expect in 2022. Good stuff coming. Finally we both attempted to put together a favorite films of all time list, which is no small feat. We talk through that. Aaron’s list is linked in the show notes.

Aaron’s Favorite Films of All Time

Aaron West

I am a somewhat educated Criterion dork, with a History and Film Studies bachelor's degree and plenty of self-education over the years. My tastes are all over the map. Probably my favorite is 1930s French Poetic Realism, but I like everything from noir, to animation, to horror, westerns, and modern film. Usually I prefer film that challenges and requires something of the viewer.
