Episode notes

Betty Gilpin in the movie 'The Hunt' getting detained by an army officer. She looks angry

The Hunt

The “Buff Black Nerd” is back in the building! Or I should say, back in his own apartment, because we are again recording remotely. This week Ify, Drea, and Alonso discuss the incredibly controversial film The Hunt, and decide whether it deserves the amount of blowback it received. Plus, we chat about the movies that use swearing and curse words the most elegantly. And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, Ethan Hawke pitches a new Before sequel and Christopher Nolan pens an emotional essay about movie theaters.

Staff Picks:

Ify – Redline
Drea – Banana Split
Alonso – Terrence McNally: Every Act of Life

With Ify Nwadiwe, Drea Clark, and Alonso Duralde.
