In a new feature to Aesthetic Magazine, we are proud to announce that we are the new presenting partner for Toronto-based film podcast Contra Zoom. Your host, Dakota Arsenault, goes in depth about everything film; from lists, to reviews, and more!
In a brand new episode, Dakota plays “Make/Remake” as he examines Gilles Mimouni’s 1996 film L’Appartement and Paul McGuigan’s 2004 remake Wicker Park. Both films tell the story of a young man who thinks he see’s his ex-girlfriend and starts to follow her to find out why their relationship had ended years earlier, but along the way suspicious things keep popping up in this romantic thriller. Joining Dakota this week is Stephanie Prior to talk about the two films.
Make/Remake examines how two films that share the same story. It isn’t about what film was better or worse, but how they are similar and different while following the same arcs.
