ALL THE OLD KNIVES, MOTHERING SUNDAY, and WINDFALL on Episode #404

Thandiwe Newton and Chris Pine sit across the table from each other at a restaurant smiling at sunset in the movie All the Old KnivesWe kick things off this week with Charlie McDowell’s slow-burn character study WINDFALL (3:11), which is about a man (Jason Segel) who breaks into a tech billionaire’s empty vacation home, but has to radically change his plans when the mogul and his wife (Jesse Plemons and Lily Collins) unexpectedly arrive. Next, we review Eve Husson’s MOTHERING SUNDAY (21:31), a decades-spanning drama about grief and loss in the wake of WWI, which features a LOT of nude scenes. Then we cover Janus Metz’s ALL THE OLD KNIVES (40:54), a messy spy thriller starring Chris Pine and Thandiwe Newton whose title also happens to rhyme with a Blink 182 song. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we review Christopher Winterbauer’s 2022 HBO Max rom-com MOONSHOT

This week we offer some thoughts on whipped cream before we get to the movies. First, Megan and Evan review Shudder’s Indonesian gory horror film THE QUEEN OF BLACK MAGIC (3:29), about three friends and their families visiting the orphanage where they grew up, directed by Kimo Stamboel. Next, everyone discusses SUPERNOVA (17:05), Harry Macqueen’s heartbreaking queer road trip film where Stanley Tucci and Colin Firth play a gay couple grappling with the fact that one of them has dementia. Then it’s on to THE LITTLE THINGS (37:48), John Lee Hancock’s 90s-set neo-noir crime drama starring Denzel Washington, Rami Malek, and Jared Leto about detectives searching for a serial killer that’s dropping on HBO Max. And on our Patreon exclusive audio this week we discuss RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, a movie two of us have loved since childhood.
