Podcast: Bound / Collective – Extra Film
On this week’s Extra Film, Ryan and Jay begin their Wachowski Sisters Movie Series with Bound, and they also review the documentary Collective!
Admired as two of the leading pioneers in big-budget spectacles, Lana and Lilly Wachowski started small with a lesbian neo-noir classic from the 1990s. Small in scale but provocative and entertaining as all get out, the sisters put a spell on the audience from the moment the film begins. With a trio of stellar performances, it’s no secret why this cult classic might be one of the best directorial debuts of all time.
In the back half of the episode, the boys take a look at Collective, a documentary set halfway across the world yet feels too close to home. In a story that covers the Romanian health care system, we see the political corruption that surrounds the well being of all who live there. The film shows how the media, the people, and the politicians who care can try to fix things, even though it might not be fixable. It’s one of the best films of 2020.
Also, stay tuned for the end of the show to find out what the guys will be covering as their first director movie series of 2021!
