A Matter of Life and Death (#20)

The guys get to discuss their third Powell & Pressburger offering and… could it be the best one thus far? Many things are debated and discussed in this episode including the use of a camera obscura, whether the film’s plot is real or meant to be the visions of a dying man, the absolutely amazing special effects, sets and cinematography and one controversial religious figure that almost made a cameo. Plus – more! A lot more!

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