Christmas Movies Actually

May 20, 2023

EXPLICIT CONTENT! We don't want any angry letters after this, so there you go. Kerry and Collin are joined by Chicago film critic Clint Worthington (The Spool) to break down Sean Baker's Christmas Eve comedy about a day in the life of two L.A. trans sex workers trying to find a cheating ex-boyfriend. And it's all about the hustle! Why is the use of the song "Toyland" so important here? How does Christmas tie in with these seemingly dark themes? What are the advantages to making a movie on an iPhone 5? All this, plus a Book segment that covers some familiar ground as well as a film from the Chicago Critics Film Festival. 

Book films covered:


"The Right Stuff"

"All About Eve"
