Artwork for A Very Good Year

“Fun City Cinema” hosts Jason Bailey and Mike Hull proudly present “A Very Good Year,” a podcast with a simple premise: each week we invite a guest (filmmakers and actors, critics and historians, comedians and musicians) who loves movies, and ask them to select their favorite year of movies.

  • Great concept, always compelling

    After Jason Bailey’s fantastic Fun City Cinema podcast wrapped, I wondered how he and Mike would pivot. What I love about this pod is the exposure to a variety of cinephiles who lead me to the missed gems in my film education.

  • Good Hosts, Disappointing Guests

    Most of the guests I’ve heard seem to barely know their cinematic year outside of the 5 movies they picked. I get frustrated listening to people be like “haven’t seen it” ten times an episode. When I know the year better than the guest it makes for a bad listen. The hosts are great though.

  • Good for movie history, not so much world

    I like the concept and structure for discussing a range of movies! Some of the political context for those movies...let’s just say Soviet Cinema might be a blind spot here. Skip fifteen minutes in and you’re gold.

  • Good for movie history, not so much world

    I like the concept and structure for discussing a range of movies! Some of the political context for those movies is a little rough, though (too often a perhaps unintentional repeating of the kind of Red Scare propaganda you might hear at a HUAC hearing). But lots of great guests with different ideas on how to sum up a year of film.
