On this episode, John D’Amico and I are joined via Skype by Smug Film’s own Brad Avery. We discuss his essay Bicycle Thieves and Other Apocalyptic Films, and explore his idea that apocalyptic films and italian neorealist films have a lot in common. As always, we close the show with questions from our mailbag. If you have a movie-related question you’d like answered on the show, send it to Podcast@SmugFilm.com!
