POP ART: Episode 15, Get Out/Upstream Color


“By the way, I would have voted for Obama a third term, if I could.” Are you feeling a bit paranoid these days? Wondering if your mind’s your own? Time for Episode 14 of Pop Art, the podcast where my guest chooses a movie from popular culture and I choose a film from the more art/classic side of cinema. This time my guest, Anastasia Washington, stand up comedienne and co-host of the Cereal Killer podcast, chose the Jordan Peele game changing horror film, Get Out, and I chose writer/director Shane Caruth’s experimental, WTF sci-fi film, Upstream Color, both films about mind control. And we talk about such subjects as: Why is Get Out perhaps the most important movie of the 2010s? What is genre meets diversity? Pigs, pigs, pigs? Which ending for Get Out is the best? What happens when you write, direct, star in, edit, compose music, co-photograph and self-distribute a movie? What can be achieved on a nothing budget? So keep thinking good thoughts, if they are indeed your thoughts.
