Movie Meltdown - Episode 366
This week we welcome the return
appearance of our special guest co-host Christine
Elise as we discuss our Sofa Theater feature...
Charles Laughton's The Night of the
Hunter. Beautifully shot with memorable performances,
the film is subtle and progressive in some ways... while being
straight-forward and almost heavy-handed in others. And along the
way we find a commentary on the lives of a certain part of society
that maybe we hadn't noticed in past viewings.
And while we discuss small animals and sexual repression, we also mention... being on 90210, Larry David's wife, Robert Mitchum, helicopter shots, totally thinking about canning peaches, being assigned homework, shameful conventions, hanging out at Spoons, running like a wild animal, social media today vs. the internet of old, Olan Mills, back-lit frogs, orphaned kids, masterminds who live in an abandoned slaughterhouse, The Waltons, if you wanted to find out if someone hated you, beating children, what is that 5000 people thing about?, plied and pressured, Moses floating down the river, some rabbits, teflon strength in what seems to be the weakest thing, raw potatoes, reinventing yourself, damned gypsies, Watership Down, breedin' n' cannin', I don't have an enormous filter, steampunk drones, moving from town to town, a rat, your tailor's favorite customer, the switchblade, the overbearing neighbor lady, Shelley Winters, provocative conversation, a big turtle, a cardboard cutout, Lillian Gish, Child's Play 2, just not grateful enough, a weird lisp, Hellevator, being abducted, a fox, slacker kids and fan feedback.
"Obviously It evolves... so I've seen it a couple of times. And I was a lot younger the first... I was probably in high school the first time I saw it. And... I've seen it once or twice in the interim... and I feel like it's different every time."
