Cinema Eclectica 81 – It’s a Bus of Love, All Right?

Sam Wood won the Director’s Lottery so we decided to join the Marx Brothers for “A Night at the Opera”.

Off The Shelf features the surreal Scandinavian black comedy “Men & Chicken”, lilting Japanese drama “Sweet Bean”, Fritz Lang’s wartime noir “Hangmen Also Die”, and the newest addition to the Second Run stable – “People of the Mountains”. We also take some time out for the mammoth Question of the Week, which thankfully isn’t TOO offensive this time.

Co-founder of The Geek Show Podcast Network. Chief Editor and Executive Producer of, and tangentially overburdened host/co-presenter of several shows on the network. When I'm not engaged in production, journalistic shenanigans or the quagmire that is media criticism I watch movies, interesting TV shows and anime, I also enjoy the arts (you know, classical music and stuff), write many, many things, play and collect a lot of video games, read lots of manga, comics and books, and generally enjoy wallowing in the mass of entertainment media like a hippo in mud. I can also cook.
