Episode 47: Henri-Georges Clouzot

Friend to the show and film writer Robert Reineke stops by to talk about the groundbreaking French filmmaker Henri-Georges Clouzot.  We start off by discussing his widely acclaimed success THE WAGES OF FEAR and then take a look at the influential noir thriller LES DIABOLIQUES.  We later expand upon a couple more of his other films as well. In addition, Robert reviews the Christmas crime film CASH ON DEMAND, Patrick talks about his unusual affection for MY SOUL TO TAKE, and Jim reviews the latest from Andrew Dominik, the talky crime drama KILLING THEM SOFTLY.

In about two weeks, film and TV critic Brian Tallerico will be joining us to talk about the Vengeance trilogy from Asian director Park Chan-wook along with his other work. Please be sure to leave us a voicemail to play on the show as well at 224-366-9528.
