Aaron West of the film blog Criterion Blues joins Lady P and Flixwise co-producer, Martin Kessler, to talk about whether or not the 1978 animated adaptation of Richard Adams’ classic novel, WATERSHIP DOWN, is worthy of the Flixwise Favorites list. WATERSHIP DOWN has been favorite of Aaron’s since adolescence. Listen up to see if he can convince his fellow panelists that his continued admiration is based on more than childhood nostalgia. Along the way, they discuss religious allegories, fascism–cuz it’s the internet, and why animation rarely gets the widespread recognition it deserves.

If you have a film you’d like to submit for our alternate list please email us:
