43 – By the Sea, Mistress America, Force Majeure, The Secret in Their Eyes

By the Sea

In an attempt to write better Podcast episode summaries, I’ve decided to give a little bit more of a run down of what happens in each episode. I have no idea if people even read these things or not. Do you? I do sometimes. Most of the time I just hit play on the podcast and go right ahead into the audio glory that awaits. Is this episode further audio glory for the AB Film Review podcast? I have no idea. I don’t tend to listen to these things back again. Maybe it is. Maybe, somewhere out there, in this wide wondrous world of ours, there is someone who loves listening to the ocker sounds of an Australian married couple discussing Angelina Jolie-Pitt and Brad Pitt in a faux-Italy seaside town in By the Sea. Maybe there isn’t. We’ll never know. Or will we? I don’t know. Stop going meta Andrew. Nobody cares. We also discuss what it means to be a hipster with Noah Baumbach’s Mistress America. Given the fact that we record a podcast about movies, I feel we have some authority on the subject of what it means to be a hipster. What would you do if an avalanche was coming towards you? Would you protect your child or your iPhone? Or, would you question why you chose an iPhone when you’ve been using Android for years now and you’re just not happy with your choice. Would you then take this moment of questioning why you went with iOS over Android to figure out when your contract is up and you can move back to Android? Or, maybe you’d take the moment to question every bad decision you’ve made in your life. I’m not sure. Force Majeure kind of looks into that and we discuss that film here. Bernadette watched Secret in Their Eyes. We also go in depth into mental illness with Welcome to Me. So, there’s that.

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.
