Movie Meltdown - Episode 167

This week we return to Green Room Coffee and Espresso and we’ll need all the caffeine to help us focus on figuring out this week’s movie. By special request, we were asked to try to decide exactly what was happening in the 2011 film “Kill List”. It is...well-made, disturbing, confusing and will more then likely bring about an initial WTF reaction. But with more thought and discussion, can we in fact decide what the hell we just watched??

And while we try to decide if we are discussing the movie OR helping finish write the movie, we also mention... True Grit, a picture of a world, Kurosawa, The Atheist Channel, Curse of the Demon, The Apartment Trilogy, The Crusades, the Cohen Brothers, Diane Ladd, a demon interior decorator, the stereotypical dark side of a librarian, Spaced, what the fuck was that polar bear about?, The Devil’s Daughter, can we just say the filmmaker is wrong?, House of the Devil, Shelly Winters, Rosemary’s Baby, the actress’s Twitter page, cultural mania, naked extras, Dreams, The Wicker Man, Burn Witch Burn, compartmentalized government, organized religion, The Ladykillers, I think your dead dad is really beautiful, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, ironic laughing, by the time you are Richard Gere - you know you’ve lost it all, and trying to alienate every movie-goer in the world!

Spoiler Alert: Seriously, you HAVE to see “Kill List” BEFORE listening to the episode. So get to it...

“...here the ambiguity is kind of amorphous, it could be all kinds of different directions. Where it invites you to like, Mad Lib your own version of the movie.”
