129: Should You See ‘Don’t Worry Darling’? Plus: The controversy (or nontroversy!) of ‘Jihad Rehab.’

September 27, 2022

Episode Notes

On this week’s episode, Sonny Bunch (The Bulwark), Alyssa Rosenberg (The Washington Post), and Peter Suderman (Reason) ask if all the drama swirling about Jihad Rehab—the Sundance-selected documentary that some say never should have been made because the director is white while others say skirted questions of consent—is a controversy or a nontroversy. Then they review Don’t Worry Darling, a movie that dares to suggest that the dreamy life of the suburbs is actually, gasp, a stultifying nightmare. Make sure to swing back by Bulwark+ on Friday for their bonus episode on Avatar-mania. And if you enjoyed the episode, share it with a friend!
