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

Mar 12, 2020

Jen and Nicole discuss The Invisible Man, how effective the technique was in creating a scary movie, how we appreciate the focus on the emotional trauma rather than the physical trauma of domestic abuse, and how we feel about the revenge fantasy of domestic violence movies. We question why domestic violence hasn't had its #MeToo moment. Shout out to @lulamaybelle for her commentary on male critics. Check out the landmark movie The Burning Bed.

Jen recommends the pantheon of abuse movies, The Burning Bed, Enough, Sleeping With The Enemy, and What's Love Got To Do With It. Nicole recommends the Catch and Kill podcast.
