Al Horner and Kamil Dymek from Script Apart podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Al’s choice The Truman Show.   The Truman Show is the 1998 comedy-drama that also falls into the science fiction and touches on deep psychological traumas. Pre-dating reality TV, The Truman Show stars Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) as the unsuspecting star in his own TV show that follows him 24-7. The supporting characters are his wife, Meryl (Laura Linney), his best friend Marlon (Noah Emmerich), and his true love Sylvia (Natascha McElhone), Ed Harris exists as Christof the creator of The Truman Show on the outside controlling Truman’s narrative. We join Truman as he is experiencing a sort of mid-life crisis, unusual events happen that cause him to begin to question his reality - spotlights fall from the sky, single streams of rainfall on him and his estranged/presumed dead father reappears. He becomes increasingly more suspicious and reconnects with Sylvia and manages to escape from his home and cameras which leads to a dramatic showdown with Christof at sea.   Scores  [supsystic-tables id=185] It is fair to say The Truman Show is a modern classic, watching it leaves you with more questions (existence, reality, artificiality, destiny, free will, God) than answers. It is genuinely thought-provoking and despite the high-concept incredibly warm and full of heart. The Truman Show deservedly scores high across all Flixwatcher categories to score a very high 4.50 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen The Truman Show? What did you think?

Brian from New Zealand and Dan LeFebvre from Based on a True Story podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Brian’s choice Hereditary.   Hereditary is Ari Aster’s horror tragedy directorial debut starring Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, and Milly Shapiro. After the death of her secretive and creepy mother, miniatures artist Annie (Collette) attends an open support group and tells the group about her mother's overbearing relationship with her equally creepy daughter Charlie (Shapiro). Her son Peter (Wolff) is reluctant to take his creepy sister to a party but gives in to his mother's pressure and while at the party Charlie suffers an allergic reaction. When driving at speed to take Charlie to the hospital in a freak turn of events Peter is responsible for decapitating Charlie. The death of Charlie sends Annie further into grief and leads her to Joan who sets up a seance to communicate with Charlie. Through further investigation of her mother's belongings and history, Annie reveals a history of spells, the occult, and a plan to bring the spirit King Paimon to life with three headless sacrifices.   Scores  [supsystic-tables id=184] Not for the fainthearted, Hereditary is part an exploration through family grief and part supernatural thriller with some inventive decapitations and jump scares. Ambitious and richly detailed, Hereditary definitely rewards on the rewatch, if you can get through the first watch. The scores for Hereditary on recommendability are mixed and more favorable from Brian and Helen generally to give an overall score of 3.37. What do you guys think?

Harry and Amy from Mum and Mummer Podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Harry’s choice Burn After Reading.   Burn After Reading is the 2008 sex farce caper from the Coen Brothers starring John Malkovich, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Frances McDormand, and Tilda Swinton. McDormand and Pitt are dimwitted gym employees who stumble across a memoir from disgraced Malkovich. Mistaking it for top-secret documents they end up in a blackmail plot that goes wrong and at the same time, Clooney and Swinton are having an affair. Coming straight after the critical success of No Country for Old Men the reaction to this Coen effort was mixed, to say the least. It might be Harry’s favorite Coen caper, but it’s possibly Helen’s least favorite Coen film. On the positive, though it is only 96 minutes long.   Scores  [supsystic-tables id=183] Despite Helen’s low scores Burn After Reading still manages to score a very respectable 4.16 overall.

Giles Paley-Phillips and Jim Daly from Blank Podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Giles’ choice The Big Lebowski.   The Big Lebowski is the 1998 comedy from the Coen Brothers starring Jeff Bridges as The Dude (Jeff Lebowski), John Goodman as unhinged Vietnam Vet Walter, Steve Buscemi as their bowling pal Donny who end up embroiled in a case of stolen rugs and mistaken identity with another Jeff Lebowski, his trophy wife Bunny (Tara Reid), his daughter Maude (an outstanding Julianne Moore) and three German nihilists (including Peter Stormare, Aimme Mann, and Flea) - narrated by Sam Elliot. The plot, loosely, is centered around a fake kidnapping of Bunny where The Dude ends up being the go-between for Jeff Lebowski and the German nihilists. A series of events leads to the ransom money being lost, some bowling, loads of weed and White Russians, a severed toe, nude painting, a marmot, and an erection doodle. Completely bonkers yet enduring, mainly in part to Bridges Dude, a man, who despite repeated beatings and having his rug pissed on still remains a Dude throughout. The Big Lebowski is also a love letter to bowling - gorgeous cinematography and sounds of falling pins.   Scores  [supsystic-tables id=182] The Big Lebowski unsurprisingly scores very highly across all Flixwatcher categories (full five marks across all from Giles) and scores a very respectable 4.67 overall.
