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

A BANQUET, STRAWBERRY MANSION, and THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE on Episode #397

Jessica Alexander stands in the woods with her mouth agape staring at something above her in the movie A BanquetThis week we have strong opinions about all the movies we cover. First up, is Josephine Decker’s THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE (1:43), a surreal romance none of us could stand about a teen coping with the death of her older sister. Next, we cover Kentucker Audley and Albert Birney’s colorful sci-fi romance STRAWBERRY MANSION (19:08), a story that’s stylized and smart, but becomes way too weird for one of us. Lastly, we review A BANQUET (30:50), Ruth Paxton’s tense psychological horror film, which we all agree falters in one key area. And in honor of Black History Month, this week we talk about Spike Lee’s biopic MALCOLM X starring Denzel Washington for our Patreon exclusive audio
