Podcast: Go See 12 Years a Slave, All Is Lost, But Avoid CBGB

On this week's Voice Film Club podcast, Village Voice film editor Alan Scherstuhl and LA Weekly film critic Amy Nicholson disagree on Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave—a beautifully shot film, contrasting the all-too-visible evil of mankind.

They endorse All is Lost, a genuine nail-biter, scrupulously made and fully involving, elemental in its simplicity.

Voice music editor Brian McManus joins Alan to discuss CBGB, a movie about the NYC rock club that should probably be avoided.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS
Amy has five new Netflix recommendations; Brian encourages us to check out A Band Called Death, out on Netflix now; and Alan suggests the 316-minute Eight Deadly Shots.
