The last film of Feminist February is upon us and it feels sad to be saying goodbye. Not that we strictly have to if we choose not to, after all this is our world and we can craft it any way we like. Our picks for the month have been varied and for the most part rich and fulfilling. There have been bees , overbearing family members , disgruntled pimps and teen pregnancy - and this week we tackle: pageantry. Well, pageantry and the crushing weight of other people's expectation. While we haven't agreed the theme for March, you can rest assure we'll continue to mix it up as per. Until then, however - to the crowning of Miss Juneteenth, 2019 .
I will fight the urge to comment on the passage of time and how quickly it passes through our splayed fingers. Instead let's focus on a brand new month of hopeful film picks. We've decided to go for a Free For All to tick off some of the titles on our watchlists - and also neither of us were feeling particularly inspired when it came to choosing a theme. This week we take a little trot down A24 Lane with Netflix's new offering. Sold as a drama, I've also read a few takes on it being a modern horror movie which is harder to process but makes sense. I'll go into it below but ultimately let you be the judge.
Our free for all continues with a healthy dose of horror comedy, which personally I need right now. I'm quite confident Jill feels exactly the same. This week we spend time with a mute part-time cannibal and the man who manipulates him for... the greater good? Intrigued? Well, read on friends for our views on this twisted web of secrets, crunchy human parts and the concept of pain and suffering for art.
