S. Craig Zahler, the B-movie action schlock genre movie director whose been stirring up the critics these past few years is the main subject of this week’s episode of Stuff We’ve Seen. After Teal’s glowing review of Dragged Across Concrete, Zahler’s latest, Jim decided it was time to crack open that free week of Cinemax and see what the fuss was all about. Hear Jim and Teal dive into this film, and talk about Zahler’s other two movies, Brawl in Cell Block 99, and Bone Tomahawk.
But first–Listener John Ford, no not the long gone legendary film director, sent Jim and Teal his top ten list of the decade, and the two could not resist the opportunity to discuss. There are some interesting picks, and the list provides yet more viewing possibilities for those stuck inside riding out the COVID 19 virus.
And for those who tuned into last week’s episode, you’ll remember Jim’s Academy Award Best Picture Nominees of the 1960s quiz–you know, the one where we all found out how few of the nominated films Teal’s seen? Well, Jim is back with the 1970s, and this segment provides a great opportunity to learn what movies the Academy liked in one of the most important decades of film.
Just like the films of S. Craig Zahler, this is a super-sized episode, 80 minutes, and yet that still makes it a good forty minutes less than the typical Zahler flick. Enjoy!!!
