Sophia Takal

Things get steamy as April talks to actress and director Sophia Takal about the somewhat problematic Brian De Palma erotic thriller, Body Double. The two discuss how the film influenced Sophia's own work and her debut film, Always Shine. Sophia recalls her time as an actress, and the objectification that came with the audition process. They also analyze the violence against women's bodies in the film and the sexuality of Melanie Griffith's character, Holly Body. Despite its issues, April and Sophia also marvel at the craftsmanship of Brian De Palma, and how this film can be used as a template for how NOT to treat female characters.

Sophia Takal's Always Shine is available on Amazon now.

And if you haven't seen it yet, go watch Body Double.

With April Wolfe and Sophia Takal

This week, we take on Cherry 2000, a sci-fi movie recommended to us by comedian and former friend Kurt Braunohler. If you like Melanie Griffith and android love, you'll probably still hate this movie. Fortunately, Cameron's around to spark a light in the darkness by pitching the sequel we were all hoping would never happen: Gravity 2. Bring your thinking cap!

Next week, we'll be reviewing Side Effects, which is currently available on Netflix Watch Instant.
