Everyone has to star somewhere including the greatest filmmakers of all time like Stanley Kubrick. Fear and Desire was buried by Kubrick and bar the odd bootleg it remained unseen for years. After his death Fear and Desire has found its way onto Blu Ray and along with the question should it have been released in the first place, the most important thing is - is it actually any good?
In this episode we enlist the help of The Hollywood Gauntlets John Jansen to discuss Fear and Desire and some other stuff including Star Wars and whether or not Dr Stangelove is actually funny or not. Enjoy.
