    I’m very embarrassed to say, but once you pointed out that it’s a movie about a family communicating, it was so clear to me. I hadn’t even thought about it in that light, now I can’t not see it that way lol. Anyways, loved the podcast, and looking forward to Se7en!

      haha, same here, Joe! It wasn’t until I started collecting my thoughts after the second viewing before it dawned on me. Same thing happened with “Annihilation”, which took me three viewings, not that we’re looking to cover that one but it threw me for a pretty good loop before it all clicked into place.
