Podcast 30 already, and we rewind all the way back to 1983 to discuss the notion of it being one of the very worst years in cinema. Is it really? Filmotomy Deputy Editor Steve Schweighofer is your host this week to help us investigate. He recruits the varied film expertise of Daniel Smith-Rowsey, Rob Motto, and Robin Write to join this week’s squad. The gurus look at the films of 1983, both the bad and the good, as well as what was happening in the world to make sense of it all. Please subscribe on iTunes and / or SoundCloud, and let us know your views on the year in question.
