Eclectica 149 - Lady Bird + The Maltese Falcon + Michael

Frisking Bogie's Butt

Graham and Aidan welcome a new reviewer to the show this week as Sarah comes on board to help us with our hella-tight analysis of Greta Gerwig's "Lady Bird". It's an Oscar front-runner despite featuring no references to the Dunkirk evacuation whatsoever - but what did we think of it?

Off the Shelf sees Aidan taking a close-up look at Carl Theodor Dreyer's "Michael", which has now been reissued on Blu-Ray by Masters of Cinema. Meanwhile, Sarah gives a suspiciously intimate pat-down to Warner Archives's new release of the John Huston's classic "The Maltese Falcon".

Enjoy it while it lasts because there are terrible things coming next week - and we're not talking about Monster Family.
