And Now For Something Completely Similar: The 39 Steps (2008)

Brendan and Jason go back to films somewhat related to movies on the BFI Top 100 with And Now for Something Completely Similar.

While maintaining social distance, Brendan and Jason discuss the BBC television adaptation of The 39 Steps released in 2008. Much is discussed such as the way in which the screenplay ‘modernizes’ the female companion, Hannay acting way too much like James Bond, more pallid recreations of classic scenes and much more. Stay safe and stay inside, folks.

Next week: The guys continue the non-BFI Top 100 journey by talking about the sequel to Shekhar Kapur’s costume drama Elizabeth with the follow-up entitled Elizabeth: The Golden Age.
