116: Incendies (2010) With Daphne Joseph
This week, actress and comedian Daphne Joseph brings us a decidedly not funny film, 2010’s stunning Incendies. Nominated for best foreign language feature at the Academy Awards, this mystery/family drama/war horror is not for the faint of heart - but is well worth your time investment. One of Denis Villeneuve’s first breakthrough pictures, we discuss his work as a whole, the way he uses humour in tense moments, his skill as a visual filmmaker, and his remarkable work ethic.
Trigger warnings for this film, but it is available on Netflix!
This week’s end credit music is You and Who’s Army, by Radiohead.
