talkFILM podcast: Halloween, 22 July and Fahrenheit 11/9


Thursday, October 18, 2018

In this week's talkFILM podcast, Jamie East and co-host Hanna Flint talk Halloween, 22 July and Fahrenheit 11/9.

The pair have been discussing the lastest addition to the Halloween franchise, and the return of Michael Myers.

The film is set to be the last in the franchise, with Jamie Lee Curtis appearing as Laurie Strode in a final confrontation with the serial killer.

Curtis, who starred in the original 1978 horror flick, was branded a "hypocrite" by Fox News for wielding a firearm in the film, despite personally advocating for more gun control.



Also up for discussion is 22 July, a film based on the Norway Massacre of 2011, in which an extremist murdered 77 teenagers at a youth camp.

"At times it gets a bit much, at times it gets a little bit boring," podcast host Jamie East said of the film.

Bowling for Columbine director, Michael Moore, has returned with the documentary Fahrenheit 11/9, exploring what America is like with Donald Trump as president.

"The 11/9 refers to Trump's inauguration," co-host Flint explained.

East added that it was a "stressful" film.

"It explained very concisely, very clearly and very despressingly how Donald Trump was always going to be president," he said.
