Then we cover Christian Tafdrup’s horror movie SPEAK NO EVIL (35:40), a disturbing tale about a Danish family and a Dutch family that we have varied reactions to. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about Alfred Hitchcock’s 1941 psychological thriller SUSPICION, starring Cary Grant and Joan Fontaine!
