    ACF #26 The Fury

    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

    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

    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.

    ACF Europe #17 The Teacher

    ACF Europe #17 The Teacher

    Titus & Flagg Taylor discuss The Teacher, a Czech movie set in Slovakia in the last years of communism, the true story of the moral corruption of a small community where ideology & privilege blight the possibility of a decent life & of the parents' hope of restoring morality through the school, for the sake of the children.

    ACF Europe #16 Hand of God

    ACF Europe #16 Hand of God

    Titus & Sebastian Edoardo di Giovanni praise Sorrentino's The Hand Of God (E Stata La Mano Di Dio), the only Oscar-nominated movie that can plausibly be compared to great cinema, as Sorrentino is the only director who can be compared to a master, & who continues the tradition of Italian cinema. We talk about Naples & Italy, the ages of Rome & the future of art, the nation, & faith. We also talk about Sorrentino's autobiography & the attempt to make suffering into art.

    ACF Masters #16 Intolerance

    ACF Masters #16 Intolerance

    Titus & Eric Cook continue our series on D.W. Griffith & the origins of cinema as the democratic form of art with Intolerance, an attempt to give a visual history of humanity that can inspire people to turn away from cruelty & make the democratic age unlike the previous splendid, but catastrophic ages. A fond hope, at the outset of the World Wars.

Truly unique

Titus & guests bring universal culture & learning to bear on the silver screen. Fantastic listen.

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.
