Movies that Matter is the podcast going beyond basic film criticism to boldly explore a social issue affecting people's lives.

Jul 18, 2019

Garret S and Nicole discuss Midsommar, the superior craft of the film in terms of cinematography, art direction, and acting, but the overall letdown of the story, the very realistic portrayal of grief, and what does a garden level bad boyfriend really deserve? As a current and a former grad student, we're here to tell you that there was absolutely nothing correct in the movie about being a grad student or writing a thesis. For more backstory on how the movie was made, check out this article from the LA Times.

Garret recommends The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Nicole recommends support groups, namely The Compassionate Friends.
