Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

The Godfather. Probably one of the greatest films ever made. It has seeped into so much of popular culture that there are references to the film in everything from Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith to The Rugrats Movie. So in this introduction to the latest 101 Films Podcast, the temptation is to make weak jokes and ‘hilariously’ misquote lines of dialogue. Well, surprisingly, that’s not going to happen here!

Instead we’ll just give you a simple overview of what Lewis and Ian talk about in Podcast 014: Marlon Brando’s performance, how fantastic the film is, Al Pacino being awesome, hats, Zardoz, the influence of gangster films on gangsters, Lewis’s Butterfly Puzzle and George Lucas. Also listen out for the brand new Trivia Quiz jingle! So c’mon, give it listen. Go on, it’s great. Really, listen, or we’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse… Ah damn it.

Classic 1970s Woody Allen

Despite the approaching winter and the chilly mornings 101 Films is feeling in a romantic mood this week. And in the mood to consider how ultimately most relationships fail and even the strongest of loves can fade… Ahhh, love!

This week Lewis and Ian turn their attention to one of the great writer/actor/directors of the last 40 years (well, he was great for at least 20 of those years), Woody Allen, and one of his most well regarded films, Annie Hall. Lewis and Ian discuss New York in the 70s, Manic Pixie Dream Girls, falling in and out of love and, of course, everyone’s favourite Will Smith vehicle, Independence Day.
