Podcast: Go See 12 Years a Slave, All is Lost, and Avoid CBGB
On this week's Voice Film Club podcast, Village Voice film editor Alan Scherstuhl and L.A. Weekly film critic Amy Nicholson disagree on Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave -- a beautifully shot film, contrasting the all-too-visible evil of mankind.
They endorse All is Lost, a genuine nail-biter, scrupulously made and fully involving, elemental in its simplicity.
Voice music editor Brian McManus joins Alan to discuss CBGB, a movie about the NYC rock club that should probably be avoided.
