Episode 69: Rescreening Gone Girl

“I have a philosophy about the two extremes of filmmaking. The first is the “Kubrick way,” where you’re at the end of an alley in which four guys are kicking the shit out of a wino. Hopefully, the audience members will know that such a scenario is morally wrong, even though it’s not presented as if the viewer is the one being beaten up; it’s more as if you’re witnessing an event. Inversely, there’s the “Spielberg way,” where you’re dropped into the middle of the action and you’re going to live the experience vicariously – not only through what’s happening, but through the emotional flow of what people are saying. It’s a much more involved style. I find myself attracted to both styles at different times, but mostly I’m interested in just presenting something and letting people decide for themselves what they want to look at.”

On Episode 69 of the Podcast Drink in the Movies brings you a new extended format called “Rescreening”, in which we take a closer look at one single film. An intro to this format is provided fairly early on in the episode for those curious about what this entails. On this first Rescreening Episode Michael and Taylor cover David Fincher’s Gone Girl. We also do an abbreviated version of First Impressions for our next Rescreening title which will be Steven Soderbergh’s Erin Brockovich. Put down a coaster, put your feet up, and join us.

Gone Girl is currently available to rent from multiple sources.
