This week we went to the movies! Together! And saw Django Unchained. We kick this week’s episode off by discussing our thoughts about Quentin Tarantino’s latest film and our thoughts on the man in general.
Ari’s pick this week is David Fincher’s 2007 film Zodiac, about the search for the serial killer who terrorized San Francisco in the sixties. Ari heard Mariam dismiss Fincher as a director, and although he isn’t the biggest fan himself he wanted to see if showing her his best work would change her mind.
Mariam’s pick was Luchino Visconti’s adaptation of Thomas Mann’s novella Death in Venice. It stars Dirk Bogard as an ill composer who travels to Venice to improve his health. There he sees a young boy with whom he becomes obsessed.
