GTGC - #160 - Tangerine


"Anti-Trash" rolls to a stop with Tangerine. We wrap up our "to good for us" marathon with a look at the indie wunderkind Tangerine which is about a sex worker who is on a quest to find her no-good pimp/boyfriend. It is one of the most acclaimed films of 2015, one of the reasons being that it was shot only on the iPhone 5. 

PRODUCER'S NOTE: We  apologize for some of the technical issues that occur in the latter part of the episode. We will be troubleshooting to see what exactly went wrong. 
Alex, Dalton, Dustin, and Caleb gather around the table to talk all about the film. They share their thoughts and quick reviews before diving into their in-depth analysis of the film. Dalton hits the ground running as he takes a look at the lesser regarded male characters who he finds to be very interesting in a film full of interesting characters. He specifically talks about their familial and societal roles while also discussing their sexual preferences and the way the film handles and looks at all of that. Alex then brings the heat as she compares the film to a fairy tale: Cinderella to be specific. She does a great job driving this home by highlighting different tropes and characteristics that mark this films inclusion into that genre. Caleb is next as he waxes poetic about the film's take on life in LA. It fails to glamorize it or focus on the high-faluting areas that we normally get from movies set in Hollywood. Dustin brings everything home by discussing form and production and how the film harkens back to the French New Wave and ponders if Tangerine can kick off a similar renaissance in American Filmmaking. 
Then, using Tangerine as a catalyst, we delve into the Top 5 Films of  2015. Arthur joins the table at this point as the breakdown goes around the table - counting down 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. This conversation then shifts into a discussion of the honorable mentions of 2015 and our biggest disappointments.
