This week, we kick off by reviewing ZOLA (2:15), Janicza Bravo’s road trip-crime drama-dark comedy starring Taylour Paige and Riley Keough, which is based on a viral series of tweets. Next, we cover I CARRY YOU WITH ME (17:48), Heidi Ewing’s beautifully moving queer hybrid narrative/documentary film about an aspiring chef (Armando Espitia) who leaves his love (Christian Vazquez) in Mexico for a better life in New York City, but must make serious sacrifices along the way. Then we talk about F9: THE FAST SAGA (34:10), Justin Lin’s latest entry in the FAST & FURIOUS franchise, which is ridiculous but a lot of fun and finally makes good on a long-running fan prediction. Finally, we wrap up with WEREWOLVES WITHIN (49:02), Josh Ruben’s horror comedy mystery starring Sam Richardson and Milana Vayntrub, about eccentric townsfolk trying to figure out which one of them may be a werewolf. And in this week’s Patreon bonus audio, we talk about the winner of our LGBTQIA+ poll, Desiree Akhavan’s 2018 film THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST!

WIDOWS, BOY ERASED, PRIVATE LIFE, and more with special guest Megan Kearns on Episode #226

This week, our friend Megan Kearns returns to the show! She kicks things off with PRIVATE LIFE (3:02), a frank and moving depiction of a couple’s attempts to conceive. Next is Evan with LIFE WITHOUT BASKETBALL (7:37), a documentary about a Muslim American woman who faces discriminatory rules regarding dress, preventing her from advancing her basketball career. Then, Kris runs us through SALEM’S LOT (11:31), the classic spooky miniseries based on the Stephen King story, as well as Orson Welles’s THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND (15:33), a film forty years in the making. It’s a true masterpiece, argues Kris, and you should all see it on Netflix now. Then, Kris and Evan look at BOY ERASED (21:48), Joel Edgerton’s film about  gay conversion therapy, with some good qualities but an unfortunate amount of overlap with THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST. Last up, all three get less and less enthusiastic about Steve McQueen’s WIDOWS (40:11).

This week on Spoilerpiece Theatre: All the way from Ireland, we thank listener and friend of the show Rory for his takes on ANT MAN & THE WASP (4:15) and CABIN IN THE WOODS (5:35)! (If you want our take on a film you saw, listen to the end of the show for the best way to reach us!) From there, it’s Crewind with the bold, stylish, and heart-wrenching BOYZ N THE HOOD (8:57). Then, Dave runs us through what makes Steve McQueen in PAPILLON (1973) (20:35) worth a revisit. Closing out the show, Kris recaps THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST (36:10), a movie about one of the worst abominations against developing minds that continues to be legal: so-called “gay conversion therapy.”
