Look, I didn’t make two guests in a row choose cannibal and cannibal-adjacent movies. It just happened! But yeah, this week’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie does get into a discussion of people-chomping … though in the case of Peter Greenaway’s The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover it’s less of a plot element and more the culmination of the movie’s themes and aesthetic — and my guest, Slo Pitch and Barbelle creator Karen Knox (whose first feature Adult Adoption opens at the Revue this Satuday), is more than happy to, um, dig in.
Then, catch up to the week in Shiny Things, where I rounded up the best films of 2022 and am about to weigh in on Black Adam and the decade-long struggle of Warner Bros. to figure out how to bring DC Comics characters to the screen. That 14-day free trial is still on offer, but for this year I’ll be making the free posts available even without a subscription, because I am kind.
Speaking of kindness, our Women Talking cast-and-crew Q&As have been going so well at TIFF that we’re doing another one after Friday’s 7:05 pm show! So if you’d like to see the movie followed by a conversation with the art department — specifically production designer Peter Cosco, art director Andrea Kristof and set decorator Friday Leigh Myers — well, this is your chance! Tickets are available right here, and you should come. It’s a great group of creative people, and I know they have stories.
