ITF Watch: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004 film)

Alfonso Cuarón’s darker version of the world of Harry Potter was enormously important to the series going forward. He’s a talented filmmaker just starting to come into his own for this movie, but how does it hold up as an adaptation? Are there flaws to be found? Luke & James discuss in episode 109 of Ink to Film.

Topics include: clever filmmaking techniques expertly employed by Cuarón, the artistic concept of “one for them and one for me,” the tale of two Dumbledores, the performance of Gary Oldman as Sirius Black, the LOTR-like design of the dementors, what the Boggart would become for Luke & James, what animals the guys would chose for their Animagus, and laying out some potential plot holes (and whether or not they matter).
