Seriously... stop rambling and get on with it!

I tried this podcast, and all I wanted to hear these guys talk about the episode topic. I don’t care about them name dropping their friends. Stay. On. Topic.

Intelligent, articulate and well-researched!

Great film podcast. There are many of podcasts covering film history and several specialize in Film Noir but this one's my favorite. The two speakers take the subject seriously enough without becoming overly academic. Their opinions are the product of serious film watching and wide reading. All in all, a pleasure to listen to!

Interesting

The content is very interesting and enjoyable to listen to. The only thing I notice is that you can tell the hosts are reading their comments. It is not very conversational. But the content is very good and the hosts are quite knowledgeable. It does look like they stopped podcasting in 2011 and might be resuming. Regardless, there is a lot to enjoy in the past episodes.

Great analysis of noir

As a film director, particularly of the upcoming film noir feature Trouble Is My Business, I have found this podcast inspirational as it makes me look at some of my favorite films a new way and also look at what I did unconsciously with my film. Great job!

Its Good!

Its a good and informative podcast, but I wish these guys would ACTUALLY have a discussion instead of taking turns reading from their novel length scripts. Its informative for fans of film noir, but VERY DRY, and almost boring. The show feels more like two wannabe critics who take turns reading their reviews of films instead of actually having a discussion or GOD forbid, make a joke every once in a while to break up their monotone voices. Nice try fellas, I REALLY want to like your show, but PLEASE stop reading from scripts and try a little harder to actually have a discussion or maybe a DEBATE on the show every once in a while. Film noir isn't just a boys club, ever thought about getting a female guests perspective on the show? How about an interesting guest with personality? Or better yet, how about a guest who knows very little about film noir? Get their perspective and questions on the subject.

I Would PAY for these!

This is an excellent series. I've listened to them all and will again before viewing the films they discuss. Each podcast is like a gift package. They discuss many of my favorite films and have introduced me to several I didn't know about. I now haunt the TCM schedule. I hope Clute and Edwards will give us more.

These guys love noir. It's contagious.

These guys catch some interesting details I've missed over the years. Now I'm getting obsessive about what the heart of noir is and how it works.
Listen to their segment on The Killers first and you'll be hooked too.
