So Pixar stepped progress back a couple of decades by bullying and belittling the mentally challenged and thinking that’s ok. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves here. First we need to exorcise the demons with railroad ties, track suits and gongs in Hong-jin Na’s fantastically bizarre The Wailing. From there, we continue with the De Palma retrospective and take a coke’d out boat ride with Al Pacino and Sean Penn in the “much wiser gangster” picture, Carlito’s Way. We’re pretty confident those subways are not actually red. The Watch List devolves into more Disney intolerance and racism with Song of the South and Finding Dory as well as some good ol’ fashioned gangster comedy. Kurt keeps it “brief” this week with a quick look into the mind of Nicolas Winding Refn’s Neon Demon which we will consider a bit more thoughtfully on next week’s show.
As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
