THE INNOCENTS and THE AUTOMAT on Episode #409

A little blond girl in a yellow jacket looks frightened in the Norwegian movie The Innocents.The pandemic ain’t over folks. Dave has COVID and it sucks but he does his best to manage it in this week’s episode. Megan’s on vacation again, so he and Evan tackle two movies. First up is Lisa Hurwitz’s documentary THE AUTOMAT (3:26), a short, but interesting chronicle of the once-popular restaurant chain in New York City and Philadelphia that offered fresh-cooked meals in a commissary-style eatery. Next, they discuss Eskil Vogt’s disturbing horror film THE INNOCENTS (19:07), which is about a group of children who develop dark powers that they wield against each other and the adults around them. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, Evan and Dave talk about Elaine May’s 1976 crime drama MIKEY AND NICKY, starring Peter Falk and John Cassavetes!

Channing Tatum and Adam Driver enlist Daniel Craig’s help with a robbery in LOGAN LUCKY.

It’s late August at Spoilerpiece! Hells yeah! Even though it’s the g.d. dog days of summer and there’s jack in the way of new releases, we did a new episode and we even found a new movie! Yay! But first, we step into RIEDEL’S RECAPS. Dave takes on the Monkees in HEAD (2:56) and then Edward Zwick’s GLORY (7:15), which spends a lot of time with the white cast members even though it’s about the first black soldiers fighting in the American Civil War. Evan takes over for an installment of CREWIND, featuring his take on the 2005 version of Mel Brooks’ THE PRODUCERS (11:00). We get to a new release with KRIS spoilerpiecing SOME FREAKS (17:25), which is On Demand right now. (Demand it!) Evan and Dave then get into Steven Soderbergh’s feature film return, the glorious LOGAN LUCKY (37:15), which they enjoyed the hell out of. Finally, Kris and Dave hit up AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL: TRUTH TO POWER (51:24), which is a movie.
