The Canon

Earwolf and Amy Nicholson

Film critics Devin Faraci (BIRTH. MOVIES. DEATH.) and Amy Nicholson (MTV News) have a weekly conversation about if a film is worthy to enter the Canon. They will put it up to fan vote at the end of the show, and the legacy of each movie will be officially decided forevermore. [This show is currently on hiatus]. Looking for the archives?

Film critic Armond White joins Amy this week to pit two classic concert films against one another. Prince's "Sign o' the Times" goes head to head with Talking Heads' "Stop Making Sense" in a musical battle for the ages. Amy and Armond discuss what makes a great movie musical, the potency of a strong-willed auteur, and each films' respective generosity towards showcasing talent. Plus, they assess the evolving means by which we associate music and images before leaving it to a final vote. Which film will enter the Canon? Head to the Earwolf forums to cast your vote!
