Narration can get a bad rap in film. Some critics consider it a lazy crutch for storytellers to tell rather than show. The reverse of the popular wisdom of what makes the best for visual storytelling. Rules are made to be broken, however. This week on CinemaJaw we listen to the voices in our heads… figuratively speaking… as we cover our Top 5 Narrations in Film.
To keep things simple, no guest this week. Just Matt, Ry and Pfil here to guide you through as the narrators of this podcast.
