Salutations applications and welcome to a new episode of the Awesome Friday Podcast! This week we’re taking a closer look at two new films: First, director Adrian Lyne’s new film Deep Water starring Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas, recently released on Amazon Prime here in Canada and Hulu in the US, followed by Richard Linklater’s latest animated nostalgia piece, Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood.
When I tell you that you’re not ready for ‘Fresh‘, I don’t just mean the moment it pulls back its curtains to reveal its true nature leaving you wide-eyed and breathless. I also don’t mean the last 30 minutes, where I though my heart might actually escape through my mouth and run out of the room. It’s the moments where director Mimi Cave slams us out of our genre comfort zone, throwing our expectations on their heads, and confronting us directly through the eyes of her cast smashing through the fourth wall. The absolute dread she induces by just having a steady hand on the edits. The sheer desperation she squeezes out of every moment.
By the time you see the credits, one thing is incredibly clear: Mimi Cave is the freshest (sorry) new horror director in town.
