Third episode, and to mix it up a little I’ve gone for something a little more recent with the infallible decay of The French Connection. It’s such a clever picture – efficient action delicately laced with the artistic degradation of a crime-ridden New York City. If you don’t fancy a listen just click here forContinue reading “Podcast: The Awesome Bleakness Of The French Connection”
Not strictly new – but kind of. For the second episode, I’ve gone for a Cimino classic: Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. And while the old review wasn’t bad, I’ve added a few touches to liven it up a little; I’m not sure if any of you read the previous version, and certainly none of you haveContinue reading “Podcast: Unlike Your Usual Western, Thunderbolt And Lightfoot Captures Something Beautiful”
