THE WHITE TIGER, IDENTIFYING FEATURES, BREAKING FAST, and OUTSIDE THE WIRE on Episode #341

White Tiger 2

THE WHITE TIGER has some great ideas about class tensions, but only one of us thought they were explored effectively.

After a everyone talks a little bit about the inauguration and plugs recent guest appearances on the Screen Fix podcast, Evan and Megan review OUTSIDE THE WIRE (5:05), a Netflix sci-fi film starring Anthony Mackie and Damson Idris, about a cyborg military officer and a drone pilot working together to stop a nuclear attack. Next, Dave and Megan discuss the queer romantic dramedy BREAKING FAST (18:18), Mike Mosallam’s directorial debut about a gay Muslim man (Haaz Sleiman) navigating romantic challenges during the month of Ramadan. Then, Megan and Evan dig into IDENTIFYING FEATURES (33:59), Fernanda Valadez’s devastating drama about a mother (Mercedes Hernández) traveling across Mexico looking for her son when he goes missing trying to cross the border into the U.S. Everyone wraps up with THE WHITE TIGER (53:06), Ramin Bahrani’s Netflix drama, an adaptation of the novel, about an Indian servant (Adarsh Gourav) trying to break free from his employers. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we review a Patron’s choice: the 1985 martial arts flick THE LAST DRAGON.
