Welcome to Everything Trying to Kill You, the comedy podcast that talks about horror movies! In episode 40, about Lynne Ramsay’s film You Were Never Really Here, your hosts Mary Kay and Mary, and their lovely guest Christopher David Rosales answer important questions like these:
What weapon would YOU use to torture someone? What is “gabba gool?” Do you get the meat sweats? Is that vocal technique something you knew how to do before this improvisational conversation? What makes this movie scary? Why doesn’t Mary Kay smoke weed? Is Joe scary to you? Did you like the save-the-cat moments? How did you feel about his morality? Is it gross that Mary Kay is attracted to this character? What would Joe’s first Tinder message be? How does the score work (or not)? Why doesn’t Nina close her eyes when Joe kills her predators? What does the score have to do with the title? What’s the deal with the counting down voiceovers? What’s significant about Joe asphyxiating himself his bedroom? What do the elements of body horror do for the movie? Did the movie balance the things we see with the things that we don’t see? Why does Joe hold hands with the man he just murdered? How does the movie engage with the body’s senses? What makes you know that Joe is the best man for this job? What are the most striking images in this film, and what do they mean? What does the circle tattoo mean? Which are the best composed scenes? Can you think of a scene in which someone smiles? Speaking of disturbing images, what about that panic attack that Joe has in the pink room? What about the girls who ask Joe to take a picture of them? What is the deal with the ending? What about how that actual shot is handled, with the blood going all over the diner? What happens after the movie ends?
