The Phantom Carriage + A Foreign Affair + White Fire + Female Trouble

Jul 01, 2020, 05:00 PM
This week's podcast is a slow swan-dive from arthouse bliss into a swamp of sleaze, starting - after a Question of the Week that baits the Oscars more than Stephen Daldry - with Victor Sjöström's The Phantom Carriage. An inspiration to Ingmar Bergman and Stanley Kubrick, it still holds up nearly a century later.

Off the Shelf starts out well enough, with Billy Wilder's sparky post-war rom-com A Foreign Affair from Eureka Masters of Cinema. Then Rob has the interesting task of reviewing an incest-themed chainsaw-wielding Turkish action movie. That's White Fire, out on Arrow Video, before Sarah rounds off with Criterion's Blu-Ray of Female Trouble. John Waters. Divine. You know what to expect.
