Episode 6 – THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Conversations On Cinema

This week, Charles Elmore and I take a look at two very different types of avengers on this episode of The Bad and the Beautiful.

You can download it on iTunes or stream Episode 6 here. E-mail us your thoughts at:  icantunseethatmovie@gmail.com.

First, we both admire the stones of the long-awaited Marvel blockbuster crossover Avengers: Infinity War, which just set a new opening weekend box office record with a haul of $258 million over three days (besting the previous mark of $247.9 million set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens).

Then for an avenger of a much darker sort, there’s Joaquin Phoenix as a deeply troubled vigilante hitman who rescues underage girls from the sex trade, in director Lynne Ramsey‘s latest You Were Never Really Here.

All that, plus I take a quick look at Lean On Pete, a more sobering and realistic portrayal of the “boy and his horse” archetype, from U.K. director Andrew Haigh (45 Years). Also, at the very end of the episode, we play a bonus clip of Haigh giving his pitch for a Marvel movie to Elvis Mitchell, host of KCRW’s “The Treatment“.

Music Selections: 
– “Avengers Theme”, Alan Silvestri (Avengers: Infinity War) 
– “Sandy’s Necklace”, Jonny Greenwood (You Were Never Really Here) 
– “Dark Street”, Jonny Greenwood (You Were Never Really Here)
