"The Lighthouse"

For this week's main podcast review, myself, Bianca Garner & Dan Bayer review the second feature film from filmmaker Robert Eggers: "The Lighthouse" starring Robert Pattinson & Willem Dafoe. Due to the maddening nature of this movie, we felt it best to discuss the movie with FULL SPOILERS so if you haven't seen the film yet, please do not listen as this wholly unique and original film should be experienced unspoiled. For those who have already lost their minds watching the film...strap in. There's a lot to discuss.Check out more on NextBestPicture.comPlease subscribe on...SoundCloud - https://soundcloud.com/nextbestpicturepodcastiTunes Podcasts - https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/negs-best-film-podcast/id1087678387?mt=2Spotify - https://open.spotify.com/show/7IMIzpYehTqeUa1d9EC4jTAnd be sure to help support us on Patreon for as little as $1 a month at https://www.patreon.com/NextBestPicture

"Midsommar"

For this week's second podcast review, Kt Schaefer, Dan Bayer and myself discuss Ari Aster's follow-up to last year's breakout horror debut "Hereditary" with the ambitious and artfully made "Midsommar." Filled with excellent filmmaking, more commentary on grief, new commentary on relationships and a central performance from Florence Pugh which will surely catapult her to super stardom, "Midsommar" has a lot on its mind and so do we. Join us on this spoiler filled review as we discuss as much as we can about this terrifying, often hilarious and forever memorable horror film.Check out more on NextBestPicture.comPlease subscribe on...SoundCloud - https://soundcloud.com/nextbestpicturepodcastiTunes Podcasts - https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/negs-best-film-podcast/id1087678387?mt=2Spotify - https://open.spotify.com/show/7IMIzpYehTqeUa1d9EC4jTAnd be sure to help support us on Patreon for as little as $1 a month at https://www.patreon.com/NextBestPicture
