Classic Film Ideology

Ep.1 – Crafting the Perfect Movie Villain

6 months ago

What makes a good movie villain? Does the audience need to sympathize with with the bad guy?

These are questions Sam Spade will answer in this first episode of the Film Ideology Podcast. Every movie has a philosophy, you just don't see it at first.

In this episode we will discuss three movie villains:

  1. "Joker"
  2. Calvera in "The Magnificent Seven"
  3. Harry Lime in "The Third Man."
