Clint's Picks: Duck You Sucker! and The Naked Dawn
Clint chose two westerns for last week's episode but we start by talking about Twin Peaks for the first ten minutes.  These movies largely focus on the Mexican revolution, betrayal, and male friendships.  We highly recommend both movies :')  (Sorry for the late upload!)

The Unlikely Love Double Feature: All That Heaven Allows (1955) and Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (1974)
It was Claudia's turn this week and she chose movies about widows falling in love with younger men. Ali: Fear Eats the Soul is a German film, directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder who was inspired by Douglas Sirk's All That Heaven Allows. We talk about melodrama, colors, German history, and American suburbia.

Femme (and Feline) Fatales: Detour (1945) and Cat People (1942)
This week's double feature picks were chosen by Clint. At the end of the pod, I interview my dad about Cat People because it's one of his fave films. Next week's theme is unlikely love. I chose All That Heaven Allows and Ali: Fear Eats the Soul. Enjoy :-)

The Exterminating Angel & Grey Gardens (Claudia's Picks)
For this week's double feature, I chose The Exterminating Angel and Grey Gardens. Both of these movies deal with ideas of class and confined spaces. I thought it would be topical.  Hear our big brains discuss these movies.
