Eclectica 186 - Ava DuVernay + The Age of Consent + the Monster + Invention for Destruction

Justified Wrongness on the Internet

We've got everything from Jules Verne to Ava DuVernay this week, and Tim, Rob and Graham kick off an unusually packed show with a look at the Selma director's early film "Middle of Nowhere".

After that it's Off the Shelf, which is a veritable treasure trove of wildly diverse films, beginning with "Age of Consent" (Michael Powell's last film and Helen Mirren's first), from Powerhouse Films' Indicator series. Then it's time for a film that's hard to Google but fun to watch - Bryan Bertino's "The Monster" from Lionsgate, and closing things off is an animated feature as Czech genius Karel Zeman shows off his style in Second Run's release of "Invention for Destruction".

But that's not all! Keep listening to the end for a special surprise from Mark, as well as Graham's worst-ever pun.
