Episode Notes

Death in the family. The fallout of grief, loss, loneliness and isolation. It turns out Michael likes Eric’s double feature. The courage of The Eyes of My Mother pays off in a lengthy 2016 festival run covering basically everywhere a film could ever want to play. Making the unsafe bets as a filmmaker (and winning). Grief and the grotesque. How The Eyes of My Mother uses counter-intuitive editing to deliver on horror in an innovative and brutal way. Don’t Look Now and the layers of symbolism. What symbolism feeds the tone and what feeds the narrative.
