Dead Beat Film Society

We are the Dead Beat Film Society. Every meeting someone picks an important film. We all watch the film then meet back up to discuss it. Along with a discussion of why the film is important, we analyze the film making, acting, directing, and discuss our personal thoughts and opinions.

The hills are alive with the sound of deadbeats!
Join the DBFS as we discuss one of the biggest films of all time, Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, our love of the Governess, the real Von Trapp family, Austria in the 1940's, getting married to your boss, making clothes out of curtains, the battle of the bands, the manic pixie dream girl trope, those catchy songs, singing in nature, childhood nostalgia, devious nuns and the possible Sister Act prequel, solving a problem like Maria by getting married, family bands, how to love musicals, and oh yeah we talked about Nazis too.
Grab your guitar and gather round the children for an in depth The Sound of Music film analysis!

It's like Anarchist Cookbook the movie!
Join the Dead Beat Film Society as we talk the people's liberation, imperialism, terrorists vs. freedom fighters, some history of the French occupation of Algeria, how they achieved a documentary feel, the ethics of torture (spoiler alert: it's bad), the lack of a central focus or character, sympathy towards both sides, violent vs. nonviolent protest, the role of women in the revolution, the power of Ennio Morricone's soundtrack, the city as a character, the incredible impact the film had on revolutions around the world, and why we didn't see the same kind of overtly violent revolution in 1960's America with an in depth The Battle Of Algiers film analysis!
