SOBER CINEMA: One Year Later - SPLIT and THE RED TURTLE


One year ago on January 20th, 2017 the world welcomed two beasts. One was a bald James McAvoy unable to live up to his promise of hair regrowth in M. Night Shyamalan's box-office hit SPLIT, and the other was a giant turtle that is a bit clingy but does like to get down with humans in Studio Ghibli's THE RED TURTLE. Our film programmer Mike attempts to lure out yet another beast, The Nasty Hellcat, from co-host Jared but alas he actually enjoyed himself this week so that is the world's loss. While talking about various identities in film, including a nod to the great GONE GIRL, we also talk about the different identities audiences bring to films of differing expectations. Which is basically just an excuse to bring up yet again why STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI is the biggest box-office hit to ever explain the concept of "why we can't have nice things." Bring your own various identities to this podcast by downloading it on at least 24 different devices!
