Hosted exclusively by Hey U Guys, every episode of NO SERIOUSLY ITS AWESOME invites a guest to pick a film that they love that either a) everyone else hates, or b) no one else has even heard of, and then discuss the potential merits of said film. It’s about celebrating the unloved children of pop culture, the weird bastard offspring that clutter late night TV schedules and the £3 bins in HMV.
Our third episode sees Wil Jones speak to Chris Laverty, editor of the sublime blog Clothes On Film. As the sharper of you may gather, it’s a blog dedicated to film costumes, and has gotten love from such esteemed places as Grazia, Cosmopolitan, The Guardian and BBC 6 Music, and Chris himself has acted as costume expert for Mr Porter and HBO.
Chris has picked the obscure 1972 British thriller Fear Is The Key. Yes, you’ve never heard of it but you should totally hunt it down as it features a stunning car chase that stands shoulder to shoulder with Bullit, The French Connection, Ronin and anything else you care to mention. And a young Ben Kingsley. Previously it’s been very hard to get hold of, but Studio Canal released a very nice, if bare bones, DVD about a year back.
