On this week's Voice Film Club podcast, Village Voice film editor Alan Scherstuhl and L.A. Weekly film critic Amy Nicholson disagree on Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave -- a beautifully shot film, contrasting the all-too-visible evil of mankind.

They endorse All is Lost, a genuine nail-biter, scrupulously made and fully involving, elemental in its simplicity.

Voice music editor Brian McManus joins Alan to discuss CBGB, a movie about the NYC rock club that should probably be avoided.


Amy has five new Netflix recommendations, Brian encourages us to check out A Band Called Death, out on Netflix now, and Alan suggests the 316-minute Eight Deadly Shots.
