#121 - Secrets and Lies

1001 by 1

21-05-2021 • 1 hr 40 mins


Our second week of International features keeps us in the English language but across the pond as we discuss Mike Leigh’s award-winning film from 1996: “Secrets and Lies”. Adam and Ian dive DEEP into this film discussing everything from what it means to devise scripts, if Brenda Blethyn’s performance is “too much”, and are all of these tangents necessary. The guys of 1001 by 1 go toe-to-toe on this film and ultimately come to a split decision (the first one since “Birdman”) – but who says “yay” and who says “nay”. Also, this week Adam recommends “The Mist” (available to rent on most major platforms) and Ian recommends “Vera Drake” (available on Starz).
