The Alternate 100

The Alternate 100 is a list of 100 films picked by Matt Risby and Ed Davies of the Shot/Reverse Shot Podcast, attempting to showcase 100 films that generally don't get talked about or perhaps don't get the props they deserve. There's a simple selection criteria: films listed on the iMDB Top 250 or on the BFI Sight and Sound Top 100 are not permitted.

We reveal the Top 100 show by show, ten films at a time. You can listen to the episodes here:
