FILM CHURCH RADIO PODCASTERS TAKE A STEP BACK AS THEY WATCH & RE-WATCH 'BODY DOUBLE' - "IT PAYS OFF"
"I actually watched this movie twice," says Brandon, one of the co-hosts of the Body Double episode of Film Church Radio. "Going into it, I was being so critical. Like, I noticed it. You know, I was like, 'I think I'm just trying really hard...' not necessarily trying really hard not to like the movie. But I'm just... I was really dissecting it, really trying to find everything, and be like, 'Well, that wasn't good. Well that wasn't good,' you know. But, when I think about it, I'm like, I really enjoyed the movie. The movie got me. If that makes sense. What the movie was supposed to do was be fun and entertaining, and all the mysterious stuff. Because it is like a mystery film. You know, I didn't figure it out beforehand. It got me. So yeah, I enjoyed it a lot."
Lewis, the other co-host of the podcast, then responds, "Yeah. I think part of how this podcast has changed how I view films at the moment is that I'm not trying to outsmart the narrative. I know that we talked about it on the Play Misty For Me episode - about kind of just watching the film and not trying to be one step ahead. And that's what I've been trying to do. And I think with this film, especially, it pays off."
