Peter Greenaway's The Cook The Thief His Wife & Her Lover (1989) tells the tale of Albert Spica (Michael Gambon), a monstrous gangster putting on airs as a gourmand. This loutish brute is the co-owner of a restaurant where he, his wife Georgina (Helen Mirren) and his crew are regulars. Also a frequent patron at the restaurant is Michael (Alan Howard), a book dealer who is secretly Georgina’s lover.

Samm Deighan and Ken Stanley join Mike to discuss this controversial film as well as Greenaway's other work.
