Fernando Di Leo’s Milieu Trilogy:
One of the reoccurring features here at The Nerd Mentality has been Garrett’s Films from the Basement series. In it, he watches and reviews the bad, the downtrodden, and also the obscure. Why you ask? Some would say he likes to torture himself because he was never allowed new and nice things living in the basement. He was shackled to a chair only having ice cream for his meals. What he really wanted that whole time was a Baby Ruth. Now that he is allowed to live above-ground and watch some decent films, he still likes to recall his time spent below. This week we take on Fernando Di Leo’s Milieu Trilogy.
The films in the trilogy are Caliber 9, The Italian Connection, and The Boss. We take a look at each film individually and as a whole series. We invite you to get some lasagna and kick your feet up as we more than double our longest episode!
Next week we tackle a new horror comedy called Chopping Block and a South Korean martial arts crime thriller called The Divine Move.
We hope you you enjoy our discussions and also welcome anyone to join in and comment below. Our new email address is firstname.lastname@example.org which you can send suggestions or thoughts. Furthermore, we hope to continue the podcast each week and keep a steady stream of basement films!
