130: Substantive Cinema | The Grey feat. Slim (Letterboxd & 70mm)

When we had Josh Larsen of Filmspotting on in October to talk The Night of the Living Dead we were not planning to kick off a 5 film series on Criterion Collection titles but here we are. We had some fantastic discussions, with a number of excellent guests, but we wanted to zag a little bit and go in a different direction with this one. Of course Raging Bull and Matewan are substantive films, but what can we glean from Liam Neeson fighting wolves in Alaska? To help answer this question, we are joined by our old pal Slim (editor and host of The Letterboxd Show & 70mm). Talking points include: Liam Neeson being a Schrader-esque man at a desk, a very impressive plane crash, incredible wolf special effects, memorable & touching death sequences (many of which do not involve wolves at all), the problem of evil/suffering, and a question that may have never been asked before- is The Grey the first and only elevated action movie? Enjoy the show and be sure to share it with a friend!
