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

Jan 17, 2019

Garret S and Nicole discuss Escape Room, the cinematic failings of the movie in creating tension, the problem of survivor’s guilt, and trauma and post traumatic-stress disorder. We commend the set design and light touch with CGI. We also think about how the movie plays into gender stereotypes of the different ways men and women approach problem solving (and decides women are better).

Garret recommends The Body Keeps Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma, The Survivor’s Club: The Secrets and Science That Could Save Your Life, and adult coloring books. Nicole recommends treating furloughed workers with sensitivity.
