Ep. 30: The Crazies / The Class / Everyone’s a Critic - Shutter Island / Breaking the Waves

March 8th, 2010


In this slightly unhinged episode of pdxfilmcast, Josh and Evan review Breck Eisner's Romero-remake The Crazies, debate what can be gleaned from Laurent Cantet's The Class and kick off their Lars von Trier Import by examining his 1996 film Breaking the Waves. Amidst all this, they bring some outside perspectives to Shutter Island with "Everyone's a Critic", a new segment that takes a look at what other cinephiles are saying about a featured new release.

Featured in "Everyone's a Critic": Reviews by Dustin Putman and The Wall Street Journal's John Anderson

Music: Heart - "Crazy on You" / Madonna - "Crazy for You" / Britney Spears - "(You Drive Me) Crazy"
