For this podcast short Neil dares to be different.
In a bold move, he seized control of the order paper making Graham and Jeff listen to him for the entire day. Luckily we were able to distil that working day down to its most interesting parts as Neil tells us over and over again, about his love for foreign films.
In a vein effort to get Jeff to watch more cultured films, Neil compares foreign language classics to their English remakes. He waxes lyrical on the beauty of Infernal Affairs, Let The Right One In and Oldboy. Jeff talks about The Departed, Let Me In and, oh yes, Oldboy!
Rather than our usual banter, this is a much more cultured affair with some fascinating points about different film cultures, remakes and language. Perhaps we should let Neil take over more often, what do you think?
We hope you enjoy this rather different pod short from your At The Flicks team. Please tell us where you stand in regard to this interesting discussion.
