Cinecast Episode 488 – Hillbilly Protocol

Wonderful photography is all over the place; particularly in this episode. It’s a running theme through almost everything we discuss in today’s show. Elsa Dorfman uses “shed-size” Polaroids to inspire the beat poets of the day and contemporary family portraits alike in Errol Morris’ new documentary, The B-Side. Noah Hawley has stepped up his game big time in season 2 of “Fargo” – not only in cinematography but also pretty much every other aspect of a television season. The Watch List sees gimmicky gore fests, a silent three-hour progenitor for the James Bond films, underappreciated Coen Brothers fare, a new Netflix series about women’s wrestling and finally a .44 Magnum, the most powerful hand gun in the world and could blow your head clean off!
