Listen: Director, Dan Stevens, Gareth Evans discussed on The Flop House Podcast
"What a different world. It would be. If dude you're getting a Dell meant that a concert at your house. Oh, man. So I'm gonna continue this trend. I'm going to recommend another movie from a India tour director who releases a movie on Netflix. Just now I'm recommending apostle the new movie by Gareth Evans. The director of the raid. The raid two and a very stirring section of which was that VHS to think that's the one. And it is a well when I saw ads for it kind of Sumed. It was a movie that was made just for me because it's the raid director, directing mom and Dan Stevens. And it is a period piece where a man with a troubled past has to go rescue his sister who has been -ducted by an evil cult. And it basically is kind of like a and there's scenes of extreme violence, and it's kind of like if somebody made a more violent version of the wicker man crossed with the silent hill video games. So check it out and Michael Sheen's in it too. I love it. That's what the posters. Two great recommendations that I will now recommend also great movie, but a different kind of movie, you guys may remember episodes back. I recommended the movie tempo guided by Jusoh, Tommy, and recently, I saw his first movie, which is called the funeral. And it's a movie that you might call like process drama because it's very much about the process of family planning and pulling off pulling off like it's a heist a move out family planning and then going through a funeral for the grandfather family, but it's both very funny at times and very serious and said at times, but it's like you're watch. It's more like a portrait of a family than anything else where you're kind of dipping into the lives of each of the members of the family in ways that show you things about them. But there's no like big dramatic confrontation at one point. You learned one of the characters is having an affair. And that's something that it just informs everything they do from that moment. But it's not like leading up to some big. Reveal where everyone finds out in the middle of funeral. And it's either hilarious or heart-wrenching or so not a plot. Heavy adventure is what you're so. This is not a this is not a plot. Heavy quest. It's not a it's not a roller coaster thrill ride. But I found it to be really Tut alternately really touching. And just very interesting to see the family one, partly if you have any interest in how a traditional Japanese funerals pulled off to something anything about that's interesting. But it's everyone is really good and the characters are really strongly drawn in their moments. And I just I thought it was I really enjoyed being able to kind of like experienced this with this family, and there's a speech that the grandmother at the end gives it's her husband to their four that is so like like kind of plain spoken -ly emotional, and like heart-rending in a way that is a lot of the movie is I guess about the struck the kind of forms of Japanese ceremonies and how the family has to keep contorted it self. To do what is proper right for a funeral. Even if it is stressful or not how they're feeling at the moment or there's a scene where they're literally watching a video tape. That's about how you're supposed to talk to people at a funeral that you're that you're holding were attending. And she gives the speech at the end that is so like kind of nakedly personal, and I just found it really super moving and really beautiful. So the funeral not to be confused with Abel Ferrara's gangster movie the funeral which is very different movie. This is the funeral Japanese. I should clarify the movie, I recommended apostle should not be confused with the Robert devolve movie, the apostle which is still good movie. Yeah. You could you could do double feat. Whereas Dan calls them. Dan features. And hold the dark shouldn't be confused with. I don't know the darkest hour as the best I could come up with. Hey, sure. Okay. Dark.."
