Booksmart

This week we’re joined by guest host Ellington Wells, a writer and comedian whose credits include The New Negroes and Adult Swim’s Lazor Wulf. The panel discuss the teen comedy Booksmart, and what distinguishes this film from others in the “one crazy night” genre.

Kayla in Seattle called the Who Shot Line after seeing Captain Marvel, a movie that helped her shake off the idea of what women are supposed to be. She wondered if the panelists could point to any movies that helped them contextualize their place in the world.

In news, Rotten Tomatoes fights back against review-bombing trolls, director Xavier Dolan takes issue with describing his latest film
Matthias & Maxime as a ‘gay love story’, and former SNL star Chris Kattan’s new memoir
Baby, Don’t Hurt Me alleges Lorne Michaels pressured him to have sex with ‘Clueless’ director Amy Heckerling.

Let the Right One In

This week we've got the fantastic director of the new film Nancy, Christina Choe. She's on the program to talk about the vampire classic, Let the Right One In. This episode is really gripping because throughout the show Christina slowly realizes the similarities between her film and Tomas Alfredson's: the snowy backdrop, the vampiric characters, the bleak eeriness. Christina elaborates on the the amount of flexibility required to direct a feature. She discusses the importance of casting great actors and how she got Steve Buscemi and Andrea Riseborough to be in her film. Plus, she talks about the difficulties of shooting in the snow.

Nancy is streaming now.

And if you haven't seen it yet, go watch on Let the Right One In.

With April Wolfe with Christina Choe.
