The rain in Spain falls mostly on a bad philosophy of language.

This week Lost in Criterion is talking Anthony Asquith and Leslie Howard's film adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion from 1938. It's obvious that we're not supposed to like Henry Higgins (though the majority of people still seem to think he and Eliza Doolittle should end up together), but Pat and I spend a lot of the time dissecting just why his methods and goals are questionable from a linguistic standpoint. Or at least our half-informed opinions. Someday we'll actually talk about the movies we watch.

Give us a listen?
