In today’s episode we head back to 1971 with Mike Hodges' ‘Get Carter’ - one of the most iconic British crime films of all time. We discuss how beautifully shot sex scenes can be, the infallible coolness of Michael Caine, and whether or not a film this overtly sexist should be this well regarded.

This week we struggle and grunt our way through our discussion of Guy Ritchie’s ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ (1998). We talk about how delightfully British the film is, the influence a certain Tarantino had on the film, and how the world of these English geezers is a breath of fresh air after 10 week of Americana. Oh, and we talk about the abundance of cockney slang in the screenplay, if you can Adam and Eve it!

Shit we talked about:

This week, with our second guest, Mr. George Vasiliadis, we look at one of the most quotable movies of all time, ‘Scarface’ (1983). We discuss the heightened violence and ethically dubious romances, as well as the iconic synth-driven soundtrack and of course Al Pacino as Tony Montana himself, the character that has become synonymous not only with Pacino's career, but with the very concept of the anti-hero. Emphasis on the anti.

This week we discuss “Scarface: The Shame of a Nation” (1932). Tony Camonte might not be the cultural icon that is Tony Montana, but he was slinging his machine gun on the silver screen over 50 years before the Scarface you know and love. We dissect this Pre-Code Hollywood classic, and examine the many ways it still holds up as a ground-breaking piece of cinema today.
