I’m really enjoying talking with my friend Audy Christianos on the Film Don’t Lie podcast and hope that you’ll give us a listen if you haven’t already. Audy asked me a few months back if I’d join him on an exploration of several of the Friday Night Double Features on the Criterion channel of FilmStruck. In our most recent episode (#39), we discuss Louis Malle’s first film, Elevator to the Gallows (1958) and Koreyoshi Kurahara’s Black Sun (1964), which FilmStruck calls a “manic, oddball, anti-buddy picture.” You don’t even have to wait for a Friday night to roll around; watch these films now, listen to our podcast, and let us know what you think.

These films have more in common than the word “night,” so I hope you’ll join us to find out more.
