The Bad and The Beautiful: Conversations on Cinema


Nov 20, 2018

On this episode of The Bad and the Beautiful, we give you more for less, covering seven new movies in record time (well, for us anyway).

We get back in the saddle by opining about the new collection of Western short stories by the Coen Brothers, in their feature-length anthology THE BALLAD OF BUSTER SCRUGGS, now playing exclusively on Netflix.

Next we conjure up our takes on the remake of the horror classic SUSPIRIA, from director Luca Guadagnino.

Then we both double-up on a pair of films each. Jeff discusses the new Oscar hopefuls BEAUTIFUL BOY and CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?, and Charles breaks down the new thriller from director Steve McQueen, WIDOWS, and the Queen / Freddie Mercury biopic BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY.

We close out with a discussion of the auspicious directorial debut from actor Paul Dano. His first feature as a filmmaker is WILDLIFE. It stars Carey Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal.
