1937 - The Grand Illusion

1937 - The Grand Illusion

1937 takes us to France and the work of legendary director Jean Renoir. This was the first Renoir movie for all of us and his unique style hits us each differently. We spot some influence on Goodfellas (1990) as well as Reservoir Dogs (1992) and touch on the directing career of Erich von Stroheim. Other discussion topics include the origin of snowball fights, the power of language, and explaining to John the magic of a snow day.
