Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Welcome to film spotting. So if you're the kind of person who used to stay on top of new releases, maybe you saw two or four or even more new movies every month this new paradigm that has new releases popping up on various platforms with little or no warning can be frustrating. Probably, it is hard for us even Josh to keep up with isn't it miss the days of the studio release calendar that was nice. Never thought we'd say that that being said while the world waits for major titles like tenant or There are smaller films being released all the time every weekend. Later in the show, we're going to get to a few of them I though I review of a movie that had its own unique release plane drive in theaters for a week before becoming available on demand on August seven. How? Can you come over? Are you. Okay. I. AM going. Mar.. Is Not Marin for me. All right listen I'm really freaking right now. I feel like you put this idea of dying in my head can can you just call him back? Adam as the title suggests she dies tomorrow is about death. This is the second feature from writer. Director Amy Simon She's probably also familiar to send a files as an actor in the likes of upstream color and wild nights with emily and here she is specifically focusing on characters who come into let's just say a heightened awareness of their mortality caitlyn she'll plays amy a woman in. The wake of break-up who we watch and the opening section of the movie spending listless lonely night trying to unpack in her new home at one point in the evening, a pulsing blue and red strobe. Light effect seemingly invades the space casting amy under a spell. When she comes out of it, she calls a friend played by Jane Addams and tell Sir I'm going to die tomorrow. Now, that's a line or at least a variation on it that characters might speak in many of your favorite films atom fair to say mortality is a pet theme of yours You and Matty did a top five movies about mortality list back in two, thousand, eight, all that jazz wild strawberries. Those films were among your choices so I couldn't help lender after watching. She dies tomorrow. If you found the movie satisfying in the way, it explicitly presents plays with the idea of our impending deaths. Does it deserve retroactive consideration for a top five list of movies about mortality in terms of subject matter and the way it's explored regardless of my personal reaction to it, you'd absolutely have to consider it for such a top five and. I think about Jane addams character in the movie she's a friend of Caitlin shields, amy, and this is a film where almost every character in the movie not all but almost every character has the name of the actor portraying them just in case you were wondering whether or not. There was meant to be any crossover into the personal lives of this cast in the film makers Caitlyn. She'll is playing amy right named after. Presumably. Amy Siamese and whenever Jane is confronted by dubious when she starts her spiel about how she too is sure she's going to die tomorrow. She has a habit of trying to express what she's feeling that certainty with examples right there's multiple times where she says things like it's like when you're going for a walk and something happens and I'm GonNa follow her lead here Josh to start every single one of us knows. We're going to die right we walk around with that knowledge on some level every day but that doesn't carry the same terror with it as those times when it does really hit you
