#9: The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994)

April 22, 2018

Find out what happens when Elrond the Elf King (Hugo Weaving), a British Gangster (Terence Stamp), and that guy from MEMENTO (Guy Pearce) take a drag show on the road across the Australian desert in a ramshackle bus. We’re talking great characters, small towns, and nordic pop music when we cover Ashley’s pick, PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT. This 1994 Australian cult film has great performances, stunning photography, and manages to find a balance between very silly and very dramatic.

#8: Naked (1993)

April 9, 2018

On this week’s very special episode of Shut Up and Watch This, differing viewpoints lead to one of our most interesting, and certainly longest, discussions. Dave’s pick is NAKED, a 1993 film by Mike Leigh, a favorite director of both Dave and Ashley. Does Dave accurately express what this film meant to a young man out in the world for the first time? Will Ashley be able to look past her visceral reaction to the violence to truly appreciate the manic magnetism of Johnny?  Yes! No! Maybe?! Plus, discussions of Greek classics, modern anti-heroes, and the worst date movie of all time.
