Our second year of this show coincidentally begins with yet another film by Fred Zinnemann – the pair being the only works of his I’ve seen. High Noon is a story about time while this one is a story for all times! If the rest are as good as these two, I’m going to need a bigger wallet #IdBuyThatForADollar
A running topic on the show, and in my life in general, is the battle between universal acclaim and general hatred. When so many people qualify a film as good, its close to impossible to have a dissenting opinion. However, when it comes to films such as Michael Cimino’s Heaven’s Gate, if everyone hates it, any critique is valid. Join us for this epitaph of a review where we share our conflicting views while trying to understand why this notoriously flopped so hard.
