12. The Adventure of Faustus Bidgood.

We caught a screening of The Adventure of Faustus Bidgood (Andy and Michael Jones, 1986), a cult classic comedy which was also the first feature film made entirely in Newfoundland by Newfoundlanders. 

Adam and Michael, who had seen it before, took Chris to see it for the first time. Was it too Newfoundlandic for him? Would it play as well for audiences who weren't at least Newfoundland-adjacent? We discussed all this and more immediately after the screening.

[We won’t link to it, but you can find the film on YouTube. Adam’s article on the movie from the Newfoundland Quarterly is, sadly, not available online. Also check out these two tributes to the late Michael Jones.]
