The Hunt – February 2017



Luke, Tito and Will discuss Will’s recommendation, “The Hunt,” which is a 2012 Danish drama film starring Mads Mikkelson on Netflix. They try to determine if the moving picture is a flick, movie or film. They talk about the terrifying nature of the film’s narrative and how it can be applied to any similar situation around the world — and to other situations as well.

Up next is Luke’s recommendation, “Rushmore,” which can be found on HBO Go/HBO Now.

The Babadook — December 2016



Luke, Tito and Will discuss the 2014 Australian psychological horror “The Babadook.” They talk about what’s scarier: fighting an external or internal demon? And they all agree on the classification of this moving picture as a flick, movie or film.

Tito recommends “Fantasia” on Netflix as the moving picture for January.

Cinema Paradiso — October 2016



Luke, Tito and Will discuss Tito’s recommendation, “Cinema Paradiso.” The 1998 Italian drama was written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore. The Bildungsroman, or coming of age story, typically deals with someone’s formative years, but Tito argues people are always changing, adapting or growing up. Tito also references Thomas Wolfe’s “Look Homeward, Angel” and wonders whether or not you have to leave home in order to fully realize your potential.

For the month of November, Will nominates “The Truman Show,” which is on Netflix.
