Stuff We've Seen
Stuff We’ve Seen with Jim and Teal brings together two old friends and their mutual love for movies. We have over 90 years of combined film watching experience and while that doesn’t make us authorities, it does mean we have have opinions and aren’t afraid to share. Our podcast is an eclectic mix of old and new films, different genres, and a focus on experience as much as analysis. We discuss our film obsessions, our disappointments, and our pet peeves, with digressions into film trivia, personal experiences, and movies we thought we had forgotten.
Episode details

It's time for a shaggy dog tale, or time to get taking for a story ride with Jim and Teal as they explore two films from the latter portion of the French New Wave. Let's call it, the French Next Wave, with filmmakers such as Jacques Rivette and Jean Eustache taking the helm, and making their mark in the 1970s.

On this week's episode, Jim and Teal discuss two films from the BFI 2022 top 250 Greatest films of all time list, Celine and Julie Go Boating, and The Mother and the Whore. Jim challenged Teal to see both these films, and in this episode Jim will find out if Teal liked these movies, and Teal will find out why Jim challenged him to see him.
