In the latest edition of the Electric Sheep Magazine podcast, we’re looking at recent world and art-house cinema releases on DVD and in cinemas. Alex Fitch interviews the director (Christophe Van Rompaey) and star (Jurgen Delnaet) of the new Belgian rom-com Moscow, Belgium / Aanrijding in Moscou, while Jessica Fostekew talks to director Paolo Sorrentino about his new film Il Divo, which chronicles the life of former Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti who has been tried for murder and ties to the Mafia, but acquitted due to the 24 year gap of getting the case before the courts.

Also, Alex reviews the Spanish Science Fiction thriller Timecrimes / Los cronocrímenes and our new reviewer David Warwick looks at the new DVD of Geoffrey Malins’ The Battle of the Somme (1916).
