SHIRLEY, BECKY, and Racial Justice Films on Episode #308

Because we support Black Lives Matter, and we believe in amplifying Black voices, we open our show this week by discussing Coolidge Corner Theatre’s anti-racist film list (5:44) and offering our own racial justice film recommendations. Then we talk about the brutally violent, wildly entertaining movie, BECKY (20:06), where Lulu Wilson fights a neo-Nazi played by Kevin James. Next, we cover the beautiful psychological film SHIRLEY (39:33), where Elisabeth Moss stars as horror writer Shirley Jackson. On our Patreon bonus audio, we review Takashi Miike’s DEAD OR ALIVE, which caused one of us to turn it off after just 15 minutes.

THE WATER DIVINER, LITTLE BOY, THE AGE OF ADALINE, and fan mail on Episode #41

Jakob Salvati in LITTLE BOY

Evan’s face while he watched the nuclear bomb LITTLE BOY

It’s fan mail day on Spoilerpiece Theatre. Dave reads a letter his editors received at the Santa Fe Reporter, and the writer, in admonishing Dave for using foul language, swears more than Dave ever does in print. Evan rips LITTLE BOY a new one, Kris gets into history with his review of Russell Crowe’s THE WATER DIVINER (and Evan and Dave do a lot of talking with Australian accents), and Dave is on board with THE AGE OF ADALINE’s magical realism. Please forgive the audio problem we had at the end of the recording. One of the mic cords went dead and a few of Kris’ final thoughts are at low volume; it’ll be fixed by the next episode.
