If you've seen Wall-E, you know just how funny it is that we would talk about this brilliant short film this week.
The Film Snob returns with the Fellini classic, 8 1/2. This is available as another amazing release from The Criterion Collection. You'll also hear
about our contest to give away a copy that is specifically being done by us and without affiliation from the Criterion Collection or Janus Films.
This was also in the RSS feed, but wasn't put up here either. Sorry about that.
This time, we talk about Fritz Lang's serial killer film, M.
As always, Criterion puts out amazing discs, and this one is no exception. Check out the deatils here.
I promise that SG Episode 13 is uploading as I type this, but until then, here’s the newest ScreenGeeks Film Snob. This week, we talk about the astounding Contempt from Jean-Luc Goddard. Barry thanked me for exposing him to Sullivan’s Travels, and now it’s my turn to thank him. You can find out further details on the Criterion edition of Contempt at their official site.
Have you ever had a film snob mock you for not having seen Fritz Lang’s M or Bergman’s Wild Strawberries? Well, we’re here for you. Instead of making fun of people for having not seen great film works, we will be taking this mid-week release as time to discuss great films, exactly what makes them great and why they’re worth checking out. These discussions will range anywhere from 5-15 minutes, but we’ll try to keep them somewhat short.
This week, we talk about Preston Sturges’ Unfaithfully Yours. If all you’ve seen is the crappy remake with Dudley Moore, you’ll definitely want to give this a listen. You can check the full spcecs of the Criterion release on their official site.
