The Letterboxd Show: Jenni Olson’s Four Favorites

Films mentioned in season two, episode fourteen of The Letterboxd Show podcast, in which non-fiction filmmaker, film historian and Letterboxd member Jenni Olson takes hosts Slim (of 70mm podcast infamy) and Gemma (Letterboxd’s editor-in-chief) through her four Letterboxd favorites.

Jenni’s top four are: D.E.B.S.; Times Square; News from Home; and Tongues Untied. Also: lesbian film tourism; men and their feelings; the Fast and Furious fans who are sleeping on D.E.B.S.; the joys of 16mm; Gemma drops some hot Letterboxd stats; what to watch for LGBT History Month; childhood favs that don’t age well; our plans to make a D.E.B.S. spin-off series (Amazon, Netflix, call us); and Times Square 4K release when?

This episode was recorded in San Francisco, Pennsylvania and Auckland, and edited by Slim. Facts by Jack. With thanks to our booker, Linda Moulton, and transcripts by Sophie Shin. Our theme music is ‘Vampiros Dancoteque’, by film and television composing trio Moniker.
