    ACF #27 Carrie

    ACF #27 Carrie

    Titus & John Presnall talk about Brian De Palma's most famous horror movie, Carrie, 1976, adapting Stephen King's debut novel. We're in important ways rehearsing the '70s as a society, so it's worth thinking about the stories that were intended as warnings at the time about the great changes in society, especially in the '60s. Carrie, especially in its conclusion, is a remarkably clever view of American society & the future, the children.

    ACF Middlebrow #42 Celebrating Dirty Harry

    Titus & Scot Bertram talk about Dirty Harry, whose 50th an. in 2021 went largely unnoticed--the virtues of the character & of the story are now embarrassing to elites & perhaps to many other people--the criticism of society offered by the artists, however, is more timely than we could possibly wish & deserves attention!

    ACF #26 The Fury

    Titus & John Presnall talk about Brian De Palma's The Fury, a horror about the deep state, about the idealism of education (brain powers) & globalization (the UN) turning into espionage, experiments on people, & terrifying violence. At the point America runs the world, the family is most endangered.

    ACF Europe #18 La Grande Bellezza

    Titus & Sebastian discuss Paolo Sorrentino's most famous movie, Oscar-winner La Grande Bellezza, a worthy heir to Fellini as an examination of European decadence & the problem of nihilism in the midst of the most celebrated civilization, in Rome.

    ACF Middlebrow #41 Bruce Willis

    Titus is interviewed by Scot Bertram of Hillsdale--the subject is Bruce Willis's career, the blue collar action movie, the citizen-hero, & all the ways in which these movies were prescient about political problems, the vulnerability of American society, & the corruption of moral virtue by glamour or celebrity worship or entertainment.

Very good

It would be a five if the host could restrain his ponderous explanations of the obvious . Conciseness is the missing ingredient . The film selection and guests are first rate

Titus is the man

Moral imagination to spare! This guy teaches distracted people like me how to really watch movies and television.
