On this episode, John D’Amico and I are joined by Smug Film co-founder Greg DeLiso, and boy do things get heated! The two of them discuss their Idea of What a Movie Is essays (here’s Greg’s and here’s John’s rebuttal and here’s Greg’s rebuttal to John’s rebuttal) and argue over their fundamentally different views on film, and film criticism. After the break, Greg and I answer a question from the mailbag and discuss his upcoming feature film, Hectic Knife.
