Episode 7 of The Film Buds Podcast will record Tuesday morning!
We will be reviewing the acclaimed new Sundance drama, A Ghost Story, then will do a “retro review” of director David Lowery’s first feature-film, Ain’t Them Bodies Saints (2013). Later we’ll share our thoughts on the new trailers for Suburbicon and Stephen King’s IT, as well as why more “original” blockbusters are flopping, the recent criticisms against the Fast & Furious franchise, and much more! We hope you can join us!
A Ghost Story
Starring Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea) and Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), the film follows a recently-deceased ghost who haunts his widowed wife. A Ghost Story received widespread acclaim during its festival run, and could very well become an awards contender come Oscar season.
Ain’t Them Bodies Saints
This indie drama is a poignant love story that hearkens back to the days of Bonnie & Clyde (1967), amongst other fabled westerns. Like A Ghost Story, the film also stars Affleck and Mara in the lead roles, but is still a vastly different type of film from its predecessor. Ain’t Them Bodies Saints – even being only a few years old – seems to have already been forgotten, so we figured we should give it another look. We hope you will, too.
