On this week’s Someone Else’s Movie, I’m joined by writer-director Jared Moshe to talk about a film he holds dear to his heart: The Full Monty, the 1997 sleeper about a handful of blokes in Sheffield who decide to try their hands at burlesque.
How did Peter Cattaneo’s international smash steer Jared towards making an emotionally complex sci-fi drama starring the wonderful Judy Greer as a recently widowed mom wrestling with the consequences of using time travel to save her doomed husband from a pointless death? All you have to do is listen! And then go see Aporia, which opens across North America on Friday. It’s quite good.
And then get caught up on the latest editions of Shiny Things, which I’ve finally gotten back on a twice-weekly publishing schedule — for now, at least.
Over the last few days I tackled Criterion’s magnificent restorations of Budd Boetticher and Randolph Scott’s Ranown Westerns, found the hidden message of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and looked at the new 4K editions of East of Eden, Rio Bravo, Enter the Dragon and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. It’s a lot, right? Subscribe and see!
