Cinecast Episode 497 – On Skis

Scheduling lately has been rough as summer winds down and school is starting and film festivals and then of course hurricanes. But we managed to pull something together with the help of our friend Darren Aronofsky and his mother! The aforementioned hurricanes actually help to facilitate a trip through TIFF that otherwise wasn’t going to happen; so there’re lots of titles there to get through from Bruckner to Zahler. Andrew has been playing catch-up on some bullshit titles of the last year or so as well as going back to earlier Fincher as refresher. Lastly, Twin Peaks Season 3 The Return has wrapped up and Kurt has a number of things to discuss about that little slice of mayhem. Lots to dig into this week folks, and we’re starting with the book of Genesis. So stick this in your ear and settle in.

As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

I didn’t recognize her at the time but the “second girl” in Mother! is played by (French Canadian Actress) Laurence Leboeuf

Speaking of Gilliam, another film that comes to mind when bringing up divisive reaction to mother! is Tideland. In true Gilliam fashion, he focusses on the dark twisted fantasy of a young girl in a tragic, depressing adult environment. While the direction is much different, it’s another movie which challenges your comfort level through the protagonist. I even recall David Cronenberg calling it a “poetic horror film”.

Is that the one that has Jeff Bridges playing a corpse for most of the film?

More or less. After decomposing, he gets sewn up and put on display ‘ala taxidermy’ later in the film.

Interview with the Vampire has a moment like this. And obviously the Psycho series. What other movies have goofy dancing sequence with a corpse?

Well there’s obviously the Weekend at Bernie’s films. Can’t remember if the gag is in both. Apparently the Dennis Quaid film, “Beneath the Darkness” has an early scene, although I hear it’s bad.
