Christopher Cross and Dylan Schwan are back after a bit of a hiatus. Ironically, Chris got sick after watching A Cure for Wellness, so we had to postpone discussions on that. The big review this week is Get Out, though. Chris and Dylan discuss Jordan Peele’s directorial debut, which tackles racism head-on with a biting satire that is equal parts comedy and horror.
But don’t worry, we do discuss A Cure for Wellness in detail including some spoiler-discussion because that movie warrants it greatly. Chris also saw XX, a new horror anthology with shorts directed exclusively by women. Then Dylan discusses The Eyes of my Mother, a short horror film done by Nicolas Pesce. He also saw the Grand Jury prize winner from Sundance, I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore, from frequent Jeremy Saulnier-collaborator, Macon Blair.
So in terms of movies, we have you covered, but if you want to talk about the Academy Awards, we also do that. How about that finale to the night? We discuss the pros and cons of the Best Picture happening the way it did, as well as the overall night. There’s also some Blu-rays to discuss, including the Oscar-winning Moonlight and a long-awaited Criterion release of The Before Trilogy.
Next week, we’ll be reviewing Logan, which we are both eagerly anticipating.
