“Yeah. After thirty-five it’s a shit show.” This week on The Script— two New Yorkers analyze the latest movie from indie film darling Noah Baumbach. Where does "While We’re Young” fall in Baumbach’s pantheon of  adult coming-of-age dramas (The Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding, Greenberg, and Frances Ha)? Are we looking for the next Woody Allen? Does "While We’re Young" lampoon or represent the new New York? Is Baumbach hailing or decrying the modern era of documentary film in his fictional yet strikingly autobiographical narrative? If you don’t know what Ayahuasca is, now you know. Watching Naomi Watts and Ben Stiller technicolor yodel while tripping balls was priceless.

It Follows

April 2, 2015

"It doesn't think. It doesn't feel. It doesn't give up." This week on The Script Podcast, "It Follows" -- the sophomore effort from auteur David Robert Mitchell represents a movement towards more intelligent, modern horror films. "It Follows" is also Mitchell's love letter to classic horror, but does he represent Detroit? What does a strong female protagonist in a modern horror film need beside a scream and a great body? Two words, “super power." Do we get that in Maika Monroe's ingenue? How does 'anxiety horror' compare to traditional 'jump out' or 'gross out' horror? Also we talk Monster taxonomy, is ‘the follower’ a demon, a ghost, or ambiguous supernatural power? "It Follows" doesn't offer much in advice for safe sex, but our script doctors don't mind giving some.
