Podcast: A Cure for Wellness / Undine – Extra Film
This week on Extra Film, Ryan and Jay conclude their Gore Verbinski Movie Series with his psychological thriller A Cure for Wellness and they discuss the indie romance drama Undine!
As the last film in their Verbinski Movie Series, Ryan and Jay explore what might be the director’s most ambitious film to date. Known for being a box office misfire and a critical disaster, A Cure for Wellness has been evaluated over the last couple of years and look upon as one of the better films from Verbinski, due to its breathtaking visuals. While Jay dug it, Ryan didn’t, leading to a big disagreement from the hosts.
In the back half of the episode, the guys review the new film, Undine. Christian Petzold is slowly becoming on of the best directors working today, with consistent output that challenges the audience to explore emotions within themselves as the characters are experiencing them on the screen. Reteaming with his Transit acting leads, Petzold is able to give us one of the best films of the year so far with this spellbinding, modern take on a classic fairytale.
