127: ‘Bodies Bodies Bodies’ Versus The Discourse

September 13, 2022

Episode Notes

On this week’s episode, Sonny Bunch (The Bulwark), Alyssa Rosenberg (The Washington Post), and Peter Suderman (Reason) discuss the ways in which movie stars benefit from Netflix (huge paychecks!) and also how they’re ill-served by The Service (minimal promotion, which removes stars from the public eye). Is Netflix a boon or a secret curse for Hollywood’s biggest earners? 

Then the gang reviews Bodies Bodies Bodies, a social thriller that inverts the usual politics of such pictures. Bodies Bodies Bodies is the latest from A24, the indie distributor celebrating ten years of existence this year, and we’ll have more to say about that on our special members-only bonus episode this Friday.
