Episode #35 -- Our 2018 Seattle International Film Festival Roundup!

(or: "`People Get Murdered All the Time' -- Andrew Wagster, 2018")


So for this episode we've decided to take a brief break from the normal routine-- with the string of movies we've been picking lately, can you blame us? And when we say "we", we of course mean "mostly Andrew". Get it together, dude. Get. It. Together. 

Instead of talking about a movie that we selected randomly from the Scarecrow Movie Video Guide, in this episode we're talking about a bunch of movies that we deliberately chose to watch over the course of the 4 weeks that the Seattle International Film Festival takes place. Here are the trailers for the movies that we saw, in alphabetical order:


American Animals


A Prayer Before Dawn


Crime + Punishment

(couldn't find a trailer, but here's the link to the website-- we both liked this one a lot!)


Dead Pigs


The Devil's Doorway


Errementari: The Blacksmith and the Devil


First Reformed


The Guilty


Hagazussa: A Heathen's Curse


Lots of Kids, a Monkey, and a Castle

whew. As an added bonus, as promised in the podcast, here's a link to the really great/horrible episode of Locked Up Abroad that we briefly discuss:
