0087: Under the Skin

0087: Under the Skin

Its 2019 and we’re back from break with three weeks of films from 2014, a year now apparently (and absurdly) FIVE YEARS FROM NOW. I mean really, time is a bit weird, isn’t it?

Anyway this week is an uncharacteristically nuanced and deep look at Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin, in which we attempt to separate authorial intent from the audience’s experience, discuss the merits of ambiguity versus a cold hard narrative, and stop Chris getting into beef with Scotland. Well, almost.

Next week its Chris’ choice of 2014 film, Interstellar! Watch a trailer here!

There’s also a few weeks left to fill out your 2019 predictions here:

0082: The Matrix

0082: The Matrix

This week we take the red pill and ask the question: What is¬†The Matrix?

0079: Sunshine

This week Chris hosts as we take a look at Danny Boyle’s¬†Sunshine, the first of a loose (and late) horror trilogy of shows.¬†Disagreement is rife about whether this is a good film, half a good film, or just rubbish all the way through.

Next week it’s¬†Event Horizon, watch a trailer here!
