The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover (1989)

It’s time to look at ugly things through a beautiful lens, which means it’s time for 1989’s The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover.

Sophie & Mitch talk about this grimy movie and what make it so intriguing to watch. We talk about the distance style creates between an audience and a piece of art. We discuss how presenting crass or vulgar content can serve a greater purpose. It’s a loaded conversation for a dense film!

36 – Roadhouse (1989) w. Joel Taras

Joel Taras is back for more in-depth movie analysis! Today’s subject of discussion: Roadhouse (1989) is a movie about cuckolding.

Specifically we break down how explicit this film is in its deconstruction & reassessment of masculinity, sexual fidelity, and the fame of local bartenders. This movie legitimately tackles these issues with some deftness, while also being a ridiculous 80’s action movie – it’s spectacular.

That all being said, despite this being a pretty light discussion of sexually charged/explicit subject matter from a silly movie, there is some content discussed within regarding sexual violence – so if that’s something you’d prefer to avoid, use your discretion with this episode & this movie. Content Warned.
