‘Miss Bala’ / ‘Regular Lovers’

After 321 episodes of Sound On Sight, Simon Howell gets ready to make his move to Toronto, marking this the very last time the SOS hosts record a podcast live within the same room and same city. On this very special occasion we continue our France May 68 marathon by taking a look at Philippe Garrel’s Regular Lovers, his response film to Bertolucci’s The Dreamers (a movie we discussed last week). But first up is Miss Bala, Mexico’s 2012 submission for Best Foreign Language Film, recently released on DVD.
