SoS host Simon Howell was lucky enough to not only get to attend this year’s Telluride Film Festival, but also to take part in the fest’s Student Symposium, which grants access to the filmmakers behind some of the fest’s high-profile gets. To talk about three of the fest’s most interesting films, as well as the fest in general, he’s joined by Telluride vets Kate Rennebohm and Olivier Creurer. The movies up for discussion: Wim Wenders’s 3D doc Pina, David Cronenberg’s wildly divisive period piece A Dangerous Method, and the latest Werner Herzog documentary, Into the Abyss

    Simon, I’m one of the 49, who after listening to your defense of “A Dangerous Method,” may convert to your side. I’ve got a Freudian itch to see it again for a re-evaluation.

      Now that’s a high compliment! Thanks, Jason.
