    Movie/Episode recommendation

    Hi Bobby,

    My name’s Nick and a while back I stumbled across a movie I had never heard of, it completely blew me away and so ever since I’ve been desperately trying to convince everyone across movie fandom to give it a shot and hopefully drag it out of complete obscurity. The movies called ‘The Beast of War’ aka ‘The Beast’ from 1988, Directed by Kevin reynolds staring George dzundza – Jason Patric and Steven bauer, it was only released in two screens across the whole of the U.S. By columbia pictures, and I kid you not when I say this is the best Hollywood film you’ve never heard of. Quentin tarantino’s old writing partner Roger avery has it down as the best movie of 1988 on letterboxd, and he also has it down as one of his 20 desert island films with ‘Apocalypse now’ being the only other war film. The film has a rating of 7.3 on imdb, 3.5 on letterboxd, but not a single critics review on rottentomatoes, but it does have an audience score of 85%. I’m starting to get more and more podcasts to check it out and review it while letterboxd reviews seem to be on the increase now. I think it would be great if companies like Criterion or Shout factory etc could get their hands on it and give it the exposure it clearly needs. Please seek this film out, it’s available on dvd and streaming, so it won’t be difficult to track down and if you do see it let me know if you agree with me that this might be one of the 10 best american movies of the 1980s, one way or another we need to find a way to raise this movies profile and prevent it from continual obscurity once and for all.
