There is clearly a coming of age story in Agnieszka Smoczynksa's 2015 film The Lure, which is also a horror and a musical. And it's likely that genre mashup that made it difficult for people to connect to the movie and why it did poorly at the box office. Smoczynska created a strong vision for her first film, though, and because of that, the film's cult following is already growing not to mention people taking it seriously because of its placement in Criterion's lineup of releases. Join us – Pete Wright and Andy Nelson – for the fifth film in our Horror Debuts series as we join the dance party in Smoczynska's 2015 film The Lure. The Lure is pretty bonkers, but at a level that works well for both of us. While the genre mashup may be difficult for some people to click with, it worked for us. Well, to that end, Andy feels more comfortable calling it a dark fairytale musical rather than a horror film. No matter how you slice it, though, it's a fascinating film that metaphorically explores female coming-of-age and sexuality through a fairytale lens. There is a strong current of Hans Christian Anderson's “The Little Mermaid” running through this film and the filmmakers have also imbued the mermaids with the darker elements from Homer's “The Odyssey.” Using horror films like The Lure to explore metaphorical issues We've talked about horror as metaphor in both The Babadook and Relic. Horror has often been a way for storytellers to deal with issues in metaphorical ways but there's something strong in this recent run of films we've discussed that seems to make the metaphors very visual. It's a wonderful genre to explore ideas like these and we love how recent filmmakers are pushing their stories forward so deliberately. Plus, they all have strong visual design and story structure that makes these films stand out. The Lure does have its share of story issues, particularly as it builds toward the climax in the third act, but the world is so unique and engaging that it's easy to give it more of a pass. But why does this need to be in the 80s? Is it just because that's when the director, writer, and musicians upon which the story is very loosely based spent their childhood? Do the metaphors work when trying to explore what they're saying about Communist Poland in the 80s? On top of that, we also have a metaphor for immigrants moving to foreign lands to make better lives for themselves only to get trapped in the sex industry. So when is it too much? Regardless, we still really enjoy this film. The performances are great, particularly from the three actresses playing the two mermaids and their mother figure in the band. We have a lot to talk about with this one so check the film out and tune in. The Next Reel – when the movie ends, our conversation begins!

Imagine a future where smart machines are more intelligent than humans. That future may be coming much faster than we think. The stark implications are considered in this podcast. The former Chief Business Officer at Google X, Egyptian entrepreneur Mo Gawdat has long been at the heart of the artificial intelligence revolution, deeply involved in engineering, robotics, and AI. Mo is also a podcaster with a focus on how we can promote happiness. In his latest book, "Scary Smart", he argues that AI reflects our values and that unless humans change their online behavior, the consequences could be terrifying. "The true pandemic of our times is not COVID-19, Mo tells us. "AI is the real pandemic. It's at its infancy and will grow in intelligence until a point where it is undisputed that they will be the leaders."In less than ten years, he predicts, we will experience "the singularity", when artificial intelligence will be many times smarter than humans. But not all is doom and gloom. "The very essence of what makes us human — happiness, compassion, and love — is what will save humanity in the age of the machines," he writes. We discuss the practical, ethical, and spiritual implications of what's coming our way.Recommendation: Richard has just read Robert Fagles' translation of "The Iliad", by Homer — an epic Greek poem and often called the first great work of western literature.

Welcome back Reel Friends! This week, our hosts Alex and Walker were gifted the category of movies with the best soundtracks. The duo decided to stay away from original scores, and focus on movies that utilized songs to further the plot of their story. After some great mentions, Alex's pick of O Brother, Where Art Thou? was ultimately chosen. "Ulysses Everett McGill (George Clooney) is having difficulty adjusting to his hard-labor sentence in Mississippi. He scams his way off the chain gang with simple Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson) and maladjusted Pete (John Turturro), then the trio sets out to pursue freedom and the promise of a fortune in buried treasure. With nothing to lose and still in shackles, their hasty run takes them on an incredible journey of awesome experiences and colorful characters." This Coen brother film is a wonderful tale, resembling the story of Homer's The Odyssey. With a band name like The Soggy Bottom Boys, our hosts were in for a special treat with this wonderful soundtrack.
