Greetings programs! This week, Rachel subs in for Simon again, and she and Matthew take on the A24 critical darling Past Lives and the new documentary Reinventing Elvis, which explores the story of the '68 comeback special.
This episode was produced during the 2023 WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Without the labour of the writers and actors currently on strike, the films being discussed here wouldn't exist.
This week, I ask Rachel about remakes that are better (or as good as) their original films, and Rachel asks me what my favourite Elvis songs are. The bonus show happens every week for all of our Patreon supporters, and support starts at just CAD $2/month!
You will find affiliate links powered by JustWatch on this episode's homepage, if you click on those you'll be taken right to where you can swatch the films and help us keep the lights on!
