#66 | The Royal Tenenbaums 2: All About Margot

Episode description

 

 

Whether you love or loathe his signature brand of whimsical storytelling and themes of upper middle-class ennui, Wes Anderson is one of the most recognised and decorated auteur directors currently working in Hollywood. Inspired by the realisation that neither of us had really seen a lot of his work, we decided to dive into his 2001 breakthrough hit The Royal Tenenbaums - in many ways the quintessential Wes Anderson movie.

Featuring an A-list cast that inclues Gene Hackman, Angelica Huston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Stiller and Luke Wilson, The Royal Tenenbaums tells the story of a family of burned-out eccentrics who reunite after their long-estranged father returns claiming he has just weeks to live and wishes to make amends with his suspicious children. 

Join us as we discuss American royalty, inconsistent narration and Gwyneth's impeccable smoky eye while attempting to determine whether the Anderson brand is a taste we can see ourselves acquiring in the long term. We also create some drinking games and of course pitch our own sequel ideas for the movie - a surprisingly challenging proposition that leads to some out-of-the-box ideas including a gameshow, a reality TV crossover and the first ever Beyond The Box Set Board Game.

May we have your attention please? This week we're taking on a slightly less well-known movie than usual, but we definitely think it's worthy of a wider audience. Writer-director Lucky McKee's May is a surpri…

#76 | Blue Velvet - An Antz Perspective

August 2nd, 2018

Blue Velvet - an iconic movie of the 80s, but perhaps not the most compatible movie for the consumption of omelettes. That's just one of the many lessons we learned while attempting to make sense of David Lynch's twis…

July 20th, 2018

1:02:30

From the chunky flip phones and questionable hair to the dodgy sexual politics and curious lack of any real stakes, Jerry Maguire is perhaps the quintessential mid-90s prestige rom com. Written and directed b…
