294. The “Value” of the Canon

June 17th, 2020

This week, inspired by Mark Cousins' Women Make Film, Emily and Ed talk about the idea of a film canon, the ways in which it can act as a guide for budding film fan and filmmakers, as well as how it can be restrictive in terms of which films are considered great, and what values that imparts. They also talk about Gone With the Wind being taken off HBOMax and have a good laugh about statues.
