All Units

All Units is an anatomy of the thriller. Every two weeks Sean McTiernan creates a double bill in the hopes of exploring and understanding another aspect of thriller cinema.

Every other week, Calling All Units will answer questions from listeners, the host and, if necessary, the authorities.

If you keep a running list of movies you want to watch, prepare for it to get much, much longer.

“There’s nothing that people rebel more against, I told jacques, than being forced to acknowledge the secret and immediate power their fellow human beings have over them. There’s maybe nothing more common, routines. A savage power, as indifferent as a thunderbolt, where intellect, merit beauty, language are nothing but animal electricity, a polarity that suddenly develops. Falling under the spell. Forever. We never talk about it - it’s taboo. ” - A dark Stranger, Julien Gracq

Seven Days To Noon - 1950 - Roy Boulting, John Boulting
