Far from the Madding Crowd (#79)

This week, the guys talk all about the John Schlesinger epic romantic drama Far from the Madding Crowd. At three hours long, will this be a slog or a beautiful slow-burn of a drama? Or something in between? The guys talk about “pasture bloat,” the sex appeal of a young Terence Stamp, they discuss the flimsy handling of marriage “back in the day,” debate if Boldwood is an old-timey incel, lavish Julie Christie with tons of praise for her impressive lead performance and much more.

 

Plus: Brendan finally figures out which movie was playing while Jason was conceived.

The guys also draw next week’s movie out of a hat! What will it be? Join us, won’t you?
