67 – Hacksaw Ridge, Girl Asleep, Early Winter, The Confirmation, Blood Father, Wiener-Dog

Early Winter

On this episode, we go potential AACTA Award crazy as we cover three Australian films: Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge, Cinefest Oz winning Girl Asleep, and the Australian-Canadian co-production Early Winter. We then look at Nebraska writer Bob Nelson’s parable about life, religion and missing tool boxes with The Confirmation. Bernadette takes a look at another Mel Gibson effort – this time, Blood Father. Finally, we wrap up with the pseudo-sequel to Welcome to the Dollhouse with the dachsund friendly flick, Wiener-Dog.

Andrew has been a film lover all of his life. For a while now he’s been talking about how great films are and usually that’s been directly to his wife, Bernadette. Now with AB Film Review everyone else in the world can listen to what Andrew has to say to his wife.

Bernadette grew up renting videos from a Plains Video. She mostly hired out Cry Baby and wore the tape thin learning the lines to the John Waters classic. After a series of arguments in the car ride home with her husband, Andrew, the two decided to record their arguments and launch them into the world for everyone to listen to.
