Episode 016


Sometimes, a man is forced to defend his honor; Quentin and Roger defend theirs in their discussion of Sam Peckinpah’s 1971 Straw Dogs. Based on the book “The Siege Of Trencher’s Farm,” your hosts take a look at Peckinpah’s intentions and where this sits in his filmography. Then, they’ll discuss the film itself, covering Dustin Hoffman and Susan George’s performances, the ugly nature of this movie, and whether Straw Dogs can be considered a Revengeamatic. Plus, our very first Magnetic Home Video box and an examination of IB Technicolor.
