Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 73 - Days of Fear and Wonder

The BFI are currently running a series called "Days of Fear and Wonder" which celebrates some of the greatest works of science fiction cinema. In that spirit, this episode of Shot/Reverse Shot is dedicated to the genre. Joe and I discuss why science fiction is afforded more respect from critics than other popular genres, talk about the ways in which the genre allows filmmakers with big ideas but no money to make an impact, and offer our thoughts on some of our favourite science fiction films. To top it all off, we've swapped out our usual end credits music for a more apropos ditty.
