If you’ve never seen ELECTION, or haven’t seen it in a while, you might think of it as a quirky tale of a try-hard shrew-in-training who cares too much about winning an election. But take a closer look and you’ll find that Tracy is by no means the villain of the piece. For film commentator, festival programmer, and The Final Girls co-host Anna Bogutskaya — whose new book is called UNLIKEABLE FEMALE CHARACTERS — Tracy embodied a personal inner striver that she couldn’t deny, and refuses to apologize for.
Then, one quick thing about Jordan sitting in as guest-host for Bullseye, where she was reunited with Bridget Everett!
With Jordan Crucchiola and Anna Bogutskaya

About the show
On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them “feel seen.” It’s about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, “That’s me!” It’s an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relationship with movies, the impact they have on our lives, and how they influence our art.
