About

Daily Plastic is a Chicago-based movie blog, a collaboration between Robert Davis and J. Robert Parks, the same pair who brought you the wearable movie tote, the razor-thin pencil pocket, and that joke about aardvarks. If you know the whereabouts of the blue Pontiac Tempest that was towed from the Plastic Parking Lot on the evening of August 7th, 2008, or more importantly if you've recovered the red shoebox that was in its trunk, please contact us at your earliest convenience.

Davis was the chief film critic for the late, great Paste Magazine (which lives on now as a website) from 2005 through 2009, and he counts this interview with Claire Denis among his favorite moments. Every once in a while he pops up on Twitter. He's presently sipping puerh in Chicago, even at this hour. Meanwhile, Parks, whose work has appeared in TimeOut Chicago, The Hyde Park Herald, and Paste, is molding unsuspecting, college-aged minds in the aforementioned windy city. Media types are warned to stay clear of his semester-sized field of influence because of the distorting effects that are likely to develop.

Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (2010)

This edition of the Plastic Podcast is a joint production with the AFI Film Festival's AFI Fest Now website. The folks who put together the festival's online magazine kindly asked us to comment on a few of the films in their 2010 lineup, so we chose two of our favorites. We're hosting these special episodes here at dailyplastic.com and at afi.com. First up, the new film by Apichatpong Weerasethakul. In the next episode, we talk about the latest from Abbas Kiarostami.
