#137: (Pt. 2) Hereditary / Don't Look Now

Ari Aster’s debut feature HEREDITARY carries over the themes of grief, guilt, and extrasensory perception found in Nicolas Roeg’s 1973 shocker DON’T LOOK NOW, another emotionally grueling story about parents wrestling with loss. After discussing our sometimes-visceral reactions to Aster’s film, we put these two movies in conversation with each other, talking over their use of shock tactics, the supernatural, and a memorable setting. Plus, Your Next Picture Show, where we share recent filmgoing experiences in hopes of putting something new on your cinematic radar.Please share your comments, thoughts, and questions about DON’T LOOK NOW, HEREDITARY, or both by sending an email to [email protected], or leaving a short voicemail at (773) 234-9730. Show NotesWorks Cited: • "How Hereditary composer Colin Stetson made the movie 'feel evil,'" by Bryan Bishop (The Verge)• "The biggest shock in Hereditary was almost much worse," by Bryan Bishop (The Verge)Your Next Picture Show: • Tasha: “How Pixar’s Open Sexism Ruined My Dream Job” by Cassandar Smolcic(Variety/Medium) and Debra Granik’s LEAVE NO TRACE• Scott: Tim Wardle’s THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS• Keith: Dave Itzkoff’s ROBIN and Marina Zenovich’s ROBIN WILLIAMS: COME INSIDE MY MINDOutro Music: The Muppets, “Pass It On”
