Who better to join Steve in discussing this masterpiece of Neo-realism than one of the smartasses from TMZ, Comedian Brian McDaniel. Also, returning guest Comedian/Filmmaker Eric Toms gives us trivia and his take on why this movie is so damn good 70 years later. It’s 1948’s “The Bicycle Thieves” from Italian Director Vittorio De Sica.
The Irish Critic (Steve’s Mom) gives her thoughtful review and the live guests discuss the use of amateur actors, black & white, and if we got a happy ending or not. Would a bicycle lock have ruined this whole movie? Would it be called “The Segway Thieves” if it was made today. Listen in and find out.
Is this the 95th best movie ever? Chime in here: https://www.facebook.com/steve.mazan.1
