The Savage Beast No.12: Moviedrome

In this Very Special Episode episode, we take a slightly different approach and discuss the idea of curation in cinema, focusing on the beloved British cult film show Moviedrome. Films discussed include:

  • Terminator (James Cameron, 1984)
  • Jabberwocky (Terry Gilliam, 1977)
  • Assault On Precinct 13 (John Carpenter, 1976)
  • Vanishing Point (Richard C. Sarafian, 1971)
  • Manhunter (Michael Mann, 1986)

A great Moviedrome resource can be found here
