Get Out Podcast Review

Get Out is an overtly political movie, one that evokes current racial tensions making it not only relevant but incredibly frightening at times. And like the best conspiracy thrillers, Get Out piles up uncomfortable situations and unsettling images to keep the audience off-balance. This week, Ricky comes out punching as he defends Jordan Peele’s directorial debut and explains why he feels Get Out perfectly blends race-savvy satire with horror to especially potent effect.

Joining us is guest Molly Faust.

Launched in 2007, Sordid Cinema is one of the longest-running film podcasts. Following a long absence (let’s call it an extended break), Ricky D is back on the Sordid Cinema beat, accompanied by his new co-host, Patrick Murphy. The Sordid Cinema Podcast makes its return, with a new format that sees hosts Ricky D and Patrick Murphy discussing some of our favorite genre films over the years that may have flown under the radar for some audiences. This new version of the long-running show will focus more on discussion and less, on reviews, as we hope to examine the selections from a multitude of angles and break down what makes these films so special. Brought to you by the former editors of Sound on Sight, Sordid Cinema is Goomba Stomp’s Film and TV section and a leading source of movie reviews, and discussion from the world of international, independent, cult and genre cinema. We cover film festivals around the world including Cannes, TIFF, Fantasia, NYFF, Tribeca, Fantastic Fest, SXSW, FNC, Venice, Berlin, and more.
