“How do you know if you want something yourself or if your upbringing programmed you to want it?”
On this episode, Evelyn Landow returns to the show to talk about The Matrix Resurrections, the latest from Lana Wachowski and starring Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss. We talk about the whole series of films as a trans allegory, and we look at it through an ex-fundamentalist lens as well.
After that, I break down the other films and TV I’ve been watching, including what I saw at Sundance 2022!
And in the second half of the show, we continue the series The Art of Deconstruction: Faith, Doubt and Film with guest Dinah House-fire. Dinah is an ex-fundamentalist Christian as well as a drag queen. And she’s just a ton of tun to talk to, even when the topic is heavy. Dinah selected the film Boy Erased, so after telling us her story, we dig into that film starring Lucas Hedges as a young man going through gay conversion therapy. Content warning for that portion of the show (there’s a content warning in the episode as well), but it’s a great discussion and I’m so glad Dinah joined the show. This is also our longest episode ever, but everything Dinah says is great so I just couldn’t cut anything.
A quick note on Evelyn Landow: she has a music video coming out soon! I forgot to mention it on the show, but stay tuned to Arthouse Garage’s Facebook page for a link when that drops soon.
