VVe are rounding out our Robert Eggers coverage vvith this commissioned episode covering The VVitch. Is this puritanical family suffering from shared hallucination, or real curse? Under the evil imagery, is Eggers telling us a dark fairytale or allegory for a repressive environment? Maybe it’s both and either vvay, this movie is burned into our minds. This movie excels at vvorking its vvay into your subconscious and making you feel absolutely uncomfortable. Thank you Joey for commissioning this podcast!
We’ve got your second Merry Scary Christmas present ready to unwrap! It’s the 2015 horror comedy, Krampus! If you’ve never heard of the concept of Krampus, the shadowy counterpart to Santa who punishes naughty children, this film is a fun introduction to the ancient myth. It’s got a great cast including Adam Scott and Toni Collette. Join us for the podcast to hear our full breakdown.
A big thank you to Dr. DeVito for commissioning Southpaw, the 2015 boxing movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a Raging Bull-type who just can’t get out of his own way while recovering from a traumatic accident. If you’ve seen any boxing movie ever made, you’ve seen some portion of this movie, as it borrows every trope you can think of. It does manage to deliver the emotional punches though, due mostly to the excellent cast.
When we were commissioned to cover Don Hertzfeldt’s World of Tomorrow shorts, we weren’t sure if we’d even do it. Animated shorts aren’t usually our thing. We made an exception since they’re science fiction and it turns out that was the right call. World of Tomorrow is an excellent mediation on our lives and how we lead them through the lens of a future version of a girl named Emily and a clone of a man named David. Join us for far-reaching and interesting conversation about what it all means.
Thanks again to Grant for commissioning this project. You can get your very own custom commissioned podcast by visiting support.baldmove.com.
