Welcome to “The Overview," a series of alternative film commentaries where writers from Overthinking It watch and discuss their favorite movies in real time.
This edition of The Overview concludes our series of commentary tracks on the Back to the Future series by discussing the final installment of the trilogy. In Back to the Future Part III, Marty travels to Hill Valley's days as a Wild West frontier town to bring Doc Brown back to 1985.
Join Pete Fenzel, Ryan Sheely, and Richard Rosenbaum as they discuss the conclusion of the Back to the Future series. Topics include the many forms of Western film that appear in this movie, the self-actualization of Doc Brown, and how to understand time travel as a creative act.
While you're at it, pick up our commentary track for the first two episodes of the Back to the Future series, and check out all of the installments of the commentary series that listeners have called call “So good, I don't even need the movie to enjoy them.” (Don't get us wrong, we recommend you play the movie too. But it was awfully nice of them to say.)
