Pop Culture Hound@The Movies – Beyond Clueless With Charlie Lyne

BeyondCluelessIn the latest of a series of film-based podcasts, I look at Charlie Lyne's debut feature Beyond Clueless. Narrated by The Craft's Fairuza Balk, the film offers an intelligent dissection of the teen film genre – peeling back the many layers to expose what lies beneath.

Charlie, known primarily for his work with Ultra Culture & The Guardian, has created a tight film that will leave you questioning the teen flicks you've previously taken for granted. Featuring a score by indie darlings Summer Camp, Beyond Clueless shines a light on this shadowy and less-explored aspect of cinema.

Charlie kindly agreed to chat with me about how he first started out as a film critic, what steps he took to make his dreams come true, and how he brought Beyond Clueless from concept to creation. It's a fascinating glimpse into another world, but all done with the usual PCH flair and style. I hope you'll join me on this new adventure into the world of film.
