The Draughtsman’s Contract (#80)

Continuing on with the BFI Top 100 list this week, Brendan and Jason examine the 82nd best British film The Draughtsman’s Contract, which is a film focused on power dynamics and also one that surprised them on every level. They get into the discussion on who the true masterminds are in the film, go through a few of their own theories about Statue Man, they talk about the way this film looks like a painting at times, Brendan compares the film to The Favourite and much more.

The guys also roll the dice to find out what they’ll be watching next week. Join us, won’t you?
