My friend Scott Philip Goergens returns for our post mortem on Caché (2005), and we just embrace not knowing how to say “Haneke.” I find time to whine about being old and not understanding technology, and I also dole out heaps of parenting advice despite never having been (nor ever planning to be) responsible for another human’s care. Scott and I talk a bit about what makes a spoilable movie, and while I still hope you’ll watch Caché before listening to the talk, I think we manage to leave enough mystery that you’ll still enjoy the movie if you watch afterward.
Scott’s feature directorial debut 29 Needles is now available for preorder on Blu-Ray from Unearthed Films! Preorders are vitally important to independent artists, so if the movie looks like something that might be up your alley, please, please place your preorder — before February 19! unearthedfilms.com
