Directors Uncut!

May 13 2022 • 1 hr 31 mins


Onwards and upwards with the great Patreon Migration, this week it's the turn of one of Clint Eastwood's biggest directorial inspirations, Don Siegel.

Rob is joined by Graham and Aidan to talk about 1956's iconic and landmark sci-fi classic, Invasion of the Body Snatchers which isn't quite as cut and dry as it appears looking at it out of time. Before that though, the trio look at one of his final films, New Hollywood Icon, Escape from Alcatraz - a hard movie to explain, right there.

Then in the final furlong,m Rob is joined by Kat, Vincent and a debuting Will to talk about all manner of new releases. This covers the already controversial Taiwanese horror, the Sadness, as well as The Innocents, The Cellar and the Velvet Queen and much, much more.

Till next week with Nicholas Meyer, we are Directors Uncut!
