Filmically Perfect

From WYSO

Willeman (film archivist, writer, and sometimes actor) came up with three simple defining rules for "The Perfect Movie." Each week they are joined by WYSO's Niki Dakota to focus on one film in a lively discussion about why it made their list, a list unencumbered by arcane numbering systems or hierarchical rankings!More from Filmically Perfect »

Filmically Perfect: #67 Guilty Pleasures II

Zardoz (1974), Love Actually (2003), and Vanishing Point (1971) It's been way too long since we rummaged around the back of our several cinematic closets to bring to you some films we love, but will never be on the Filmically Perfect List of Perfect Movies. And what a triple feature: A Psychedelic Sci-Fi epic, a British romantic Comedy, and a Classic 70's road movie! And as an added treat, the Film Guys let our own Niki Dakota ramble on about one of her favorites. Don't worry, it won't happen often. Just Kidding, Niki!
