Episode #289: See How They Run

September 21, 2022

We did it everyone! Matt and Mike returned to the theaters to catch a new movie. See How They Run is a meta murder mystery starring Sam Rockwell and Saoirse Ronan. Bonus topics include Spaceballs, iPhone 14, and Nick Cage.

Boy does it feel good to get back to the theaters. See How They Run wasn’t the best welcome home film to watch but it wasn’t terrible either. See How They Run is a murder mystery comedy that takes place in 1950’s London. This film is a lot of fun and quite confusing at times. It’s a murder mystery inside a play about a murder mystery play that’s being turn into a film. Got all that? Ya we didn’t either. Sam Rockwell and Saoirse Ronan are excellent and have a huge support cast that builds their character arcs. The cinematography is one of the single best elements of See How They Run other than the twist and turn story. 

See How They Run is not a run out and watch film but it is worth a watch when it is available at home. Mike really enjoyed himself and awarded the film 3 out of 5 Reels. Matt thought the movie was great but really wanted more comedy. He awards it 3.5 out of 5 Reels.  

For next week's pod we have a double header! Matt sit’s down and chats with the Prescott Film Festival Director Helen Stephenson about the festival’s upcoming 12th year. Mike and Matt also head to the theaters to check out a film that is tearing up the box office, The Woman King starring Viola Davis and John Boyega.  Thanks for listening and we will chat with you next week!
