Overlooked A/V: Films, Television, Radio and More: the links to reviews, interviews and more (final form for this week)

Wild Strawberries
The (usually) weekly round up of reviews, interviews, and more about A/V materials, usually those that have been undeservedly overlooked (some deservedly, some not overlooked at all in some cases, but those write-ups need  to have some larger interest to make this not exactly exclusive list...usually!)

Hey Todd, here's the link to my review of "The Intern" — Thanks for the weekly compilation.

Todd Mason said...

Thank you, Jack...and you, Prashant...I have your THE INTERN ready to be listed, as I continue to work on the list here, only about half-done so far...entry proceeds largely alphabetically, with the usual cluster on MYSTERY*FILE and this week on Sam Juliano's site somewhat masking that fact...

You're a champ Todd - always exciting (and humbling) going through your roundups

Todd Mason said...

I'm certainly happy to put them together, but they do take a fair amount of time at the easiest of occasions! Thanks for contributing so well and so often, and the benisons!
