Feel like dropping us a note and telling us how great we're doing?  Or maybe that we have no idea what the heck we're doing and should shut down the whole thing?   Perhaps just a suggestion or two?

Well, drop us a line and let us know!  Don't be shy.  We can take it.  Especially if it's praise.  We eat that stuff up!

TFR Ep. 468: Hustlers, Alphaville, French New Wave Marathon Awards

Chris Scalzo

This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt discuss Lorene Scafaria’s ‘Hustlers’.  Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu play exotic dancers struggling to make ends meet after the financial crisis who hatch a less than reputable scheme. The film has a lot to say about the Recession, sex work, greed, and the complicated relationships experienced between women.  But is it good?  With a heavy heart (by Chris) our French New Wave Marathon closes with Godard’s ‘Alphaville’.  Will the sci-fi noir thriller finally be the one to obtain Matt’s affections?  There’s the always fascinating review of the big releases on Blu-Ray and DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week.  The show then wraps with the French New Wave Awards.  Find out who had the best performances.  What was the best scene?  And which film ended up on top.  That and more, on this week’s show. Oui!
