Listen: Dr Jim Jarmusch, Bill Murray, Adam discussed on Feminist Frequency Radio
"But you can also read it as just like, this is a black family that is undergoing this horrific experience, you know, and they there is no sacrificial negro in the film, the entire film like they are centralized in a way that we so rarely get like just on that level alone. This is amazing. I also just really quickly want to mention to listeners who may not have seen the film that it's actually it's also a really funny movie or it's not like funny constantly, but it has these moments of humor that break the tension, so effectively, and I was just so grateful for those like. There's like a few dialogue exchanges between family members. That are just you know, they again, they they're relatable, they're they're they're fun. It's just they're wonderful like the moments of humor in this. Film are wonderful. So I I you know, I definitely for all of its complexities. And and. Problematic elements. I definitely recommend people. Go see this film. Yeah. I also want to just point out like I really hate horror movies. And I really didn't wanna see this like the trailer. Scared me shitless. But it's not I think that if you could handle get out it is kind of similar in that. It's very psychological, it's a little more violent. It's a little gory or, but there's nothing explicit like you don't actually see like e e the when violence happens it's cut away, and you see like the the symbolic -ness of it. So if you are on the fence about it for that reason, and you want to see it I- recommencing it, I think I think you should be fine. Us says you should be fine. Yeah. The film is is rich in in incredible symbolism. It's beautiful filmmaking is great acting like there's a lot of reasons to check it out. So I do I do highly recommend it in terms of like, I don't highly recommend it because you just heard me talk shit about it. But I think that it's valuable it's valuable film to see. Okay. That's it. I don't know. Why ended that poorly? Let's move on to. What's your breakout? All right Carolyn. What are you freaking out about? Okay. I'm going to cheat a little bit here because I totally didn't have a freak out prepared. But like right before we started recording. This. I happen to watch the the trailer. That's just been released for Jim Jarmusch is upcoming zombie film, the dead don't die. And this is a film that it has a lot of like Jarmusch regu-. I mean, regulars in it, it has it has Adam driver built Bill Murray till the Swinton, you know, but a real the Rizza, but it has a really expansive, you know, cast. A big on samba will. But it it. It looks just from the trailer already like just the most deadpan. So Dr Jim Jarmusch, he, you know, he's he's a very important and end celebrated American filmmaker his most popular film, probably was only lovers left alive, which is a Zambian on my all time favorite films. Yeah. This looks obviously a much more comedic. It has a much more comedic than to it. But it's Assam B-movie by Jim Jarmusch. It looks so deadpan and and just pleasurable like as a movie going experience. It just looks like it's going to be a fun. A fun movie going experience that's kind of playing with playing with like zombie movie convention, but not like really being like a like a scary zombie movie. I I would expect I mean, it may be may have a little bit of actual horror in it. But anyway, yeah. Like so Bill Murray, Adam driver as the these two cops who in this small town who is suddenly stricken by zombie outbreak. And like, what are these cops in a small town who have no preparation for this whatsoever? Gonna do. Anyway, looks great. I'm I'm very excited to see it. Yeah. That's my freak out. Cool. Ebony what are you frigging out about? I am freaking out about a YouTube video by one of my absolute favorite commentators. And media critics that I want everybody to check out. It's called the lost magic menace and melancholy Diablo. Oh my God. By by media critic call. Caroline pettit? Yeah. Like for real for real bell.."
