For this very special episode, we are joined again by Mr. Quentin Tarantino to talk about Final Films from directors. By "Final Films", we are of course referring to the last film that a director did - the one that closed out their career. This is the first time Quentin has done a proper episode with us and we were very excited to have him pick "5 Films Because" with us on this topic. We hope you enjoy the conversation - it's one of our favorite episodes that we've done!

To kick off 2021, Elric and Brian go back to the very beginnings of the show where they declared that their 5 film lists would "5 Films Because" as to open things up for the highlighting of not just favorites and "best" films in a category, but rather anything they'd like to highlight. As such, both of them have chosen 5 films to talk about this episode and there wasn't any rhyme or reason to the choosing. Just 5 films they each wanted to watch and films that hadn't really been chosen as picks on the show before. Enjoy!

On this episode, Elric and Brian had the pleasure of welcoming back one of their favorite guests - TCM Underground Programmer Millie De Chirico (who previously joined us for our "Kiddie Midnights episode among others). Guidelines for this show were to program 5 double features each - consisting of one Exploitation film and one Arthouse film. It was a fun challenge and hopefully the results are enjoyable and perhaps momentarily thought provoking.
