63 – Embrace, Goldstone, Swiss Army Man, Nuts!, Janis: Little Girl Blue


Explicit Content

We do our best to avoid Suicide Squad this week by supporting independant cinema in the best way possible. We look at Taryn Brumfitt’s documentary about body image – Embrace. Sticking in Australia, we look at Ivan Sen’s latest Detective Jay Swan story Goldstone. Swerving back into Revelation Film Festival territory, we look at ‘that farting corpse’ film – Swiss Army Man. Sticking with the scatalogical, we look at the documentary Nuts! – a film about a man who implants goat testicles into people. Wrapping up we take a look at the latest Amy Berg film Janis: Little Girl Blue – the documentary on singer/musician Janis Joplin. The rain joins us at the end to say, hurry up, wrap it up now people.

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.
