Patreon update #3: Army of Shadows (+ Hill Street Blues/Mark Frost & more)


This week's "Film in Focus" was a patron recommendation from my friend Max with whom (coincidentally) I first saw this movie on its American release in 2006. Army of Shadows is a magnificent study of the French Resistance, and in this discussion I cover its tangled history (it was a failure in France at the time for a variety of political and aesthetic reasons), its striking ethos (less ideological than existential), its look, and its unusual story structure, among other topics. I also use my "Twin Peaks Reflections" this week to discuss Mark Frost's first episode for Hill Street Blues, which has some significant crossover with his later work on Twin Peaks.
