#6: Local Hero (1983)

#6: Local Hero (1983)

March 11, 2018

This week Dave chooses LOCAL HERO, a delightful, nearly forgotten comedy by Scotland’s Bill Forsyth (GREGORY’S GIRL). Yes, let’s postpone the darker movies for a while and travel to the seaside village of Ferness with Peter Riegert’s Houston oilman and a gangly twenty-something Peter Capaldi as they attempt to purchase the bay, the beach, and the entire village for Knox Oil and their astronomy-obsessed boss, Burt Lancaster. Roll up your pants and hit the tide pools, bring plenty of change for the phone box, and make sure you stay for the Aurora Borealis.

#5: The Fog of War (2003)

#5: The Fog of War (2003)

March 1, 2018

Dave and Ashley wrestle with some of the big questions while watching Ashley’s pick, THE FOG OF WAR: 11 Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara, directed by master documentarian Errol Morris. What is our moral duty to our fellow men? Who was ultimately responsible for the US involvement in Vietnam? And how did Errol Morris get Werner Herzog to eat his shoe? Definite answers to at least one of these questions, plus Dave confronts an insecurity about modern American history, and Ashley talks about a camera angle that changed her forever.
