Film Club Rule #634: Your taste may not be everyone’s taste, but that doesn’t mean it’s not good taste.
What makes a great film? What makes a film your favorite film? People love lists, and everyone’s an expert. Do critics’ lists carry the significance they once held? The 2012 Sight & Sound Top 10 List is featured in this episode. Heather, Jeff, and Rusty each discuss a film on the list and discuss the relevance of each in 2016.
