Tilda Swinton, Spiro, Neil discussed on The Projection Booth Podcast


I think the conclusion that trilogy, even though there is no allusion in it to mater ten room and yet Peter, Neil, most assuredly is an acolyte of mater, ten abroad. I mean, there are no two ways about it. He, he worships the darkness, the blood flying. Violence. So I think that that is actually the end of the three mothers trilogy, even though perhaps technically staking, it's not emotionally speaking we is, and that's the thing that we can have a completely different show about ten Abry. But the thing of him giving you an expectation and not in tweaking you, is that you think right. You look up that word if you don't know Latin darkness, and it's the most brightly lit film ever and all the murders take place in the daylight from I remember or really bright light. So yeah, so he's messing with your head. You know, it's not the darkness of of when things happens. The darkness of the soul say much of over and over and over again. And it never fails to reward watching because it is so unbelievably dark at the same time. That is so incredibly. Bright. It's a knockout film for me. And again, that's another one that kudos to done may in the team over at synapse. They did a really nice clean up ten break too. So if you pick that one up on Blu, Ray really should. Yeah. The snaps release of of suspicious looks gorgeous. I watched the extras and I was slightly disappointed with some of the extras that are on there and the, it's weird to me just how few female voices there are. As part of the extras is part of the commentary because it feels like as we talked about suspicious very much a female film and that I feel very honored in, I'm not trying to blow smoke up your ass Maitland. But you are the woman who wrote the book on our Gento. So having your voice on here, having Alexander's voices, part of the interview is just like. I'm like, well, how tough was it to get you guys together in the talk about Spiro? I don't really think I have to twist your arm very hard to do that. So it's like I would have liked you guys have been on that disc maybe as well. So I don't know. I was slightly disappointed by that that it felt like it was a little giving very prominent female critics little short shrift on that. I appreciate biting a hand here by saying that, but what are you going to do it? It's how I feel. So I want to know a little bit more about this news spirit, which I still don't know why it's coming out November second here in the states rather than before Halloween. This feels like the perfect Halloween type of movie. I haven't really looked too much at who's in it. What's going on. The only thing I know is that Tilda Swinton isn't it, and she is always amazing, no matter what she's in, and I hear that she's playing two characters. His, yes. And the Jesus outta me wives not opening around Halloween makes up the perhaps somebody thought, oh, it's too classy for that. I don't know. That's all I can think. I saw this movie at a screening that was not a critic screening. It's not a bad movie by any stretch of the imagination. It is beautifully made, but I'm not really sure what the point of it is. Okay, it's very handsome. It is very well acted. Okay. Here's the thing that I, I actually like about it a lot. I really understand the way in which the dance world is a cold. And I don't mean that in a bad way per se, but it's it's a way of life. She commit yourself to dancing, you commit yourself to a way of life. That is not the way most people live their lives. It's a commitment to. A world is extremely insular and extremely demanding physically and emotionally. And I think that the new suspicious absolutely captures that, but I'm not really sure that I am convinced that that idea of the insularity of the dance world and the cultish -ness of it carries through to the film overall. Tilda Swinton is fantastic and it she is so incredibly good. I don't even know what to say. She's fantastic, but I didn't come out of that film thinking, you know, holy cow, my world was just turned upside down. You didn't get punched in the face again?.
