In a world where criticism is biting, snarky, and fleeting as ever, there's something to be said for sitting down and listening to someone explain his analysis of a work in more than 140 characters. While the humorous, jibe-heavy commentary method famously employed by MST3K! and RiffTrax is nothing new, it will be the means by which the National Comedy Theatre crew skewers the 1950 noir film D.O.A. The NCT team takes the ribbing one step further by deleting the movie's entire audio track, thereby leaving room for jokes, and only jokes.
