Feeling a bit trapped? Longing to escape? So are the characters in the latest installment of my podcast series POP ART. So what better time to sit down and indulge? The basis of Pop Art is for my guest to choose a movie from popular culture and I will, in turn, chose a film from the more arty/classic side of cinema. This time my guest movierob selected the epic John Sturges WWII prison escape film The Great Escape. I in turn chose the more austere, minimalist Robert Bresson WWII prison escape film, A Man Escaped, both based on true stories. And in this episode we cover such topics as: Did the Simpsons do it? Why was Steve McQueen not chosen most popular actor on the set of The Great Escape? What liberties did the writers take for The Great Escape? Why is anti-cinema at times more emotional than cinema? And what does A Man Escaped have to do with The Incredible Hulk? So come along with us as we explore man in captivity. Don’t forget to leave a comment and follow my podcast.
