A Salute to Manny Farber and Termite Actors
We pay our respects to our favorite working leads in good-bad films.
In honor of the late critic Manny Farber’s idea of termite art, and of the movie doldrums of late August, this week on the IFC News podcast we pay our respects to our favorite working leads in good-bad films. After all, great acting is one thing, but the ability to yell about getting revenge on the guy who killed your wife while flexing your abs and outrunning a fireball is quite another, and worthy of its own kind of appreciation.
