Digital Fix FilmCast Vol 3: Crime Movies

Well after we seduced the elderly gentleman in the corset in volume one and then boiled the family's bunny with our animated podcast, we return from being drowned in the bath to discuss our mortal liking for three great crime movies. Elliot Foster cracks the whip and starts us off with City Of God, Fernando Meirelles and Katia Lund's tale from the slums of 60's and 70's Brazil.

Here's the trailer:

Next up, Matt Shingleton gets his gang together, dons his black gloves and cracks open Michael Mann's Thief. A meeting of golden age of Hollywood story with post new wave aesthetics, or a bit like Lucio Fulci? Here's the trailer:

Finally, I join the family table and prepare to tuck in to Claude Chabrol's La Ceremonie. A late masterpiece from Claude Chabrol adapted from Ruth Rendell's excellent A Judgement in Stone. Here is the French trailer:
