TGB Episode 86: The Dreaded NC-17 (Guest: Film Threat's Don Lewis)
by Tim Buel
December 1, 2011
On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim & Jeremy are joined by Don Lewis of Film Threat and co-director of award winning doc Worst in Show, to discuss their Picks of the Week, the newest DVD & Blu-Ray releases, talk about the trailers for Gary Ross' The Hunger Games and Oren Moverman's Rampart and much more. The main topic is a discussion on the dreaded and notorious NC-17 rating in honor of Steve McQueen's Shame (rated NC-17) hitting select theaters this weekend. The guys talk over some famous NC-17 ratings in the past and discuss alternative release solutions for films that are slapped with the taboo rating.
The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~7:30PM PST. You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!
