The Twin Geeks 137: The Devil’s Backbone (2001)

It’s a podcast overflowing with enthusiasm! The Twin Geeks’ newest Editor, Vaughn, an enthusiast of all things, debuts on the show to discuss a plethora of exciting new topics ranging from massive blockbusters to crafty art films. We begin with Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, after returning from an early theater screening. Julia Ducournau’s Titane is also spotlighted, in proximity with her beloved prior work, Raw (2016), and her fundamentally unique approach to sweet but haunting character pieces. It’s also peak festival time, as our Editors return from Nightstream’s virtual festival with a stock of diverse outsider films, with the exceptional Mad God leading the pack. Then.. Seattle has a hockey team and Calvin must discuss it, it’s in the contract. Guillermo Del Toro’s The Devil’s Backbone finishes off the show, as we dissect a shared favorite filmmaker and the creative vision of his Spanish films in particular. All of this and more from your independent resource for classic and contemporary cinema.
