Opera Omnia Episode 2: The Keep (1981)

s01e02

Welcome to Season 1 Episode 2 of Opera Omnia Podcast, the podcast that dedicates every season to a incredible director and works through his/her Opera Omnia (or body of work) one movie at a time.

Join your hosts Andy Blockley and Duncan McLeish (formerly of Doing the Nasty Podcast) as they take an in-depth look at some of the best directors in cinema history with Season 1 exclusively looking into the filmography of Michael Mann.

On episode 2 the guys look back at The Keep (1983), Mann’s attempt at a supernatural horror story set in the early 1940’s in the mountains of Romania where a secret is buried deep inside The Keep awaiting its time of release….Oh and Nazi’s…lots and lots of Nazi’s.

Movie Rating is 1-10

The Keep

Duncan – 6

Andy – 6

Each episode we will ask the question, is this the best movie in Mann’s back catalogue and as of episode 2 we agree that Thief retains its position as the best Michael Mann movie at the time of 1983. We will see how long this holds out.
