FS #248: Gomorrah / If.... / Top 5 Movies We Probably Got Wrong
Friday, 06 March 2009 01:00
March 6: On this 4th Anniversary episode of Filmspotting... Adam and Matty go to the mattresses for a review of "Gomorrah," the acclaimed new Italian gangster film that demystifies and strips any pretense of romance from cinema's beloved depictions of the mafia. Next, the guys wrap-up their Angry Young Men Marathon with a discussion of "If...," Lindsay Anderson's 1968 film starring a very young Malcolm McDowell as a burgeoning revolutionary trapped in an English boarding school. Filmspotting then marks its show milestone by confessing the Top 5 Movies We Probably Got Wrong -- including a visit from an old friend.

Also on the show: Massacre Theatre -- presented by In Review Online -- Listener Feedback and music by Gregory and the Hawk ... Download from iTunes here.
