Podcast: A Canterbury Tale / The Wolf of Snow Hollow – Extra Film
On this week’s Extra Film, Ryan and Jay continue their Michael Powell / Emeric Pressburger Movie Series with A Canterbury Tale and they also review The Wolf of Snow Hollow!
With their first review of The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, Ryan and Jay tackled one of the best films of the director’s career. The Extra Film boys take a stroll to the English countryside during WWII with A Canterbury Tale. A more modest film this week, with the hosts seeming to like it for the most part but not over the moon for it. It leads to a quick, detailed discussion about this mostly forgotten film.
In the back half of the episode, the boys take a look at The Wolf of Snow Hollow. Director Jim Cummings follows up his stellar debut Thunder Road with another cop drama about a small town facing the ramifications of a serial killer on the loose. While The Wolf of Snow Hollow might be getting high praise from many critics, but Ryan and Jay have big expectations for Cummings, and sadly, this project has let them down. One of them even goes on to call it one of the worst films of the year. Listen to the show to see which host it is who says this.
