While the United States is wrapped up warm celebrating Thanksgiving with its nearest and dearest - that one holiday that no one outside of America really understands or cares about - Team ScreenAnarchy again casts fresh eyes over some overlooked gems of world cinema. 

This month, by sheer coincidence, proves a wholly American affair, with works from such cinematic luminaries as D.W. Griffith, Steven Spielberg, Brian De Palma and Richard Linklater going under the spotlight for the first time. As is proving increasingly the case, our new takes on uniformly revered classics can offer up some fascinating new observations to consider. Enjoy!

To Shelagh: watch Godfather Part III. While it doesn't reach the level of 1 and 2, there is plenty in it to enjoy, even with warts and all.

Sure, THE FURY is no CARRIE, but you're right: it's pretty terrific. But here's my question: In a world where we have THE FURY… why does *anyone* give a shit about SCANNERS?! I'm a huge Cronenberg fan, and give me a whiteboard and a slideshow and I'll demonstrate why SCANNERS may be his worst film. As a tale of warring psychics as a metaphor for other, more disturbing themes, THE FURY has SCANNERS beat on every level: performance, visuals, set pieces, subtext… IT EVEN HAS A BETTER PERSON-EXPLOSION. And it was made three years earlier.

Honestly, this boggles my mind. History should be looking at SCANNERS as a poor Canadian answer to THE FURY. Why the former is inexplicably lauded while the latter languishes in obscurity exasperates me.

It's because THE FURY sucks. Boom. Roasted.

Yes, more people have said I should watch it than not, so I will get around to it eventually.
