This time we discuss Alfonso Cuarón's Children of Men,
yet another dystopian vision of the future, because the ultimate
goal of this podcast, as it turns out, is to depress Mom. She
shares some childhood memories and we conclude I am a likeable
person. Mom drags in Son of Man, Soylent Green,
and Sophie's Choice and I try to understand how films I've
never heard of are related to the subject matter at hand. She
gushes over some of the actors she loves that are in this film,
albeit for a short while. Mostly we go through the story and
highlight our favorite scenes and continue to find that none of it
is really all that fictional, let alone sci-fi. We look up a couple
of actresses without mentioning their names to you, because we
mostly wanted to know their characters' names. The government
handing out suicide pills leads to a tangent full of
miscommunication, but no one commits suicide at the end of it.
Someone does get pumped full of bullets and Mom is quite interested
in how the body convulses before hitting the ground. In the
interest of never going into politics - as is totally the mission
statement on our podcast, in case none of you had ever noticed -
Mom jokes about Trump's response to the Parkland shooting.
The trailer for today was the Official Trailer of Francis Lawrence's Red Sparrow, which stars some actors Mom absolutely loves!
