We’ve got a rare treat in store for you with episode 412: it’s under an hour. Well, as close to under an hour as we can get 30 minutes devoted to Drug Cartels & the CIA, 30 minutes devoted to domestic horror. First up, Emily Blunt learns lessons on the horrors of the international drug war first hand. We might not want to hear (or believe in) those lessons, but they are dished out with brutal precision in Denis Villaneuve’s Sicario. Next up is slow-burn horror of a slightly unconventional nature in Goodnight Mommy. The Austrian film is shot gorgeously from one scene to the next, but a dull realization sets in as the movie slogs along and a flirt with torture porn makes for some exasperating viewing to what is otherwise a pretty austere art-film. But hey, if we’re squirming in our seats, maybe that’s a good thing? Hopefully you won’t be doing much squirming (in any way) throughout this show.
As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
