Jon is joined by aspiring filmmaker Derek J. Power aka DJP to discuss David Lowery's new existential film, "A Ghost Story." A hit at Sundance, this movie stars Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck in a film about love, art, life, and death. Derek and Jon start with a quick, spoiler-free review of the film, and then go into an in-depth analysis.
In the debut episode of Film Baby Film, Jon brings on close friends and fellow cinephiles Chris Madden and Sophie Besl. They discuss upcoming films, as well as an in-depth review of The Beguiled, including a focus on race and gender issues. Other films discussed: the 1971 version of The Beguiled, the 1947 classic Black Narcissus, and a brief comparison to Picnic at Hanging Rock.
