What’s the movie with a possibly problematic deaf heroine – shut yo mouth! I’m just talkin about Hush. Summer in the city means our episodes are coming at a sedate, congenial pace but here is a new one to slake your disgusting thirst and bitches it’s a two parter. Gabby gets into the alcoholic seltzers and we take on the issues of a nondeaf actress playing a deaf role, the best way to balance making a killer scary without fetishizing their power and the absolute vindication of watching someone conquer our collective home invasion fear. Scuttle silently back around here next week for the conclusion the whole internet will be talking about!
Gabby has some admonishments for the manly men of Last Podcast on the Left who are FOR SURE listening for what she believes to be unfairly harsh treatment of Aileen Wuornos: The Liberator. To hear their outrageous statements about shooting men somehow being “wrong” or “murder” check it out. Other serial killer and disaster rundowns are quite good if you wanna pour some more episodes into your earholes.
Or for what I feel to be a more honest and incisive narrative watch the documentary twofer Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer and Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer.
Zoe also makes a belated recommendation for the Netflix documentary Amanda Knox and we state the incredibly obvious aka you should already have watched Handmaids Tale here in our patriarchal dystopia.
