Look, I’m not qualified to discuss Orson Welles! I don’t have a degree in . . . Wellesian Film History! I don’t get what’s going on in his head! But, a deal’s a deal. So, here’s “The Lady From Shanghai!”

Twittersode 007 – Mrs. Miniver (1942)

I’m here with a new Twittersode, this one about 1942’s propagandastic film “Mrs. Miniver!” It’s got an agenda, and that agenda is DRAMA! I mean, it’s clearly a piece of pro-war propaganda, but it’s also really good!

This week, Phil is taking a quick peek at Jean Vigo’s 1934 masterpiece, “L’Atalante.” It was his greatest film. It was his lastest film.

This Twittersode, I look at “La Chienne” from 1931. It’s not fun, but it’s really really good.

Twittersode 001 – The General (1926)

Slotting in nicely bertween “Greed” and “Frankenstein” it’s Buster Keaton’s “The General!” It’s also only me talking about it! It’s also only 15-minutes long!
