I call this next stretch of episodes “the Summer of Accidental Hot Takes.” It wasn’t our goal setting out, but when one digs into cult films with opinionated fanbases….well….
Look, sometimes a movie survives for 35 years because it’s very pretty and we all love Tim Curry, and it’s okay to admit that. This film has GLITTER and EIGHT THOUSAND CUTS and TANGERINE DREAM and oooooh boy that script, huh?
