GTGC - #206 - A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

23Jan

Your favorite film analysis podcast is back again as the Anti-Trash Marathon rolls on. This week, Alex has a host pick and she chose the Iranian-American vampire film, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. Aside from Dustin, nobody else at the table had seen the film, which is always fun.

Before we throw A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night on the film analysis table, we have to play our game. On this week's episode, we talk about "Movie Monsters We Want to Fall in Love With". It is a convoluted title for a convoluted game, but it is a lot of fun.

As analysis gets underway, Dalton kicks things off by looking at relationships. He talks about how when people are involved in interpersonal relationships, the people involved take on each other's baggage. He also speaks to the cat in the film as a symbol of this baggage that is shared.

Alex zigs instead of zags and presents an environmental reading of the movie. She points out some of the political imagery of the film and how it reinforces the environmental themes at play. Dustin wraps things up to talk about the film watching experience and spectatorship. He discusses the intertextual references of the film and how that impacts the viewer's experience. He argues that depending on how much film the viewer has seen they will have a different experience.

That's it for this week's show. The sun is coming up and we need to get back inside, hit play and come in... If you'd like.
