Nightmare Family Functions of 2021
While 2020 kept so many families painfully apart, three acclaimed indies from last year made the opposite case: “Why do I see these people again?” Playing a little 2021 catch-up, Chance and Noah drop by to visit “Spencer,” “Shiva Baby,” and “The Humans” to explore how families—be they English royalty or middle-class Americans—banter, bristle, covet nostalgia, push buttons, and flirt with genuine horror.
But hey, just look at that spread.
our favorite movies
Be Reel is a movie reviewing & reappraising podcast hosted by Chance Solem-Pfeifer and Noah Ballard.
Each time out, we select three movies based around a genre and call up guests ranging from submarine captains to Oscar winners. Then, we rate the movies, weighing both technical quality and entertainment.
Noah and Chance are old friends who mostly respect each other’s opinions. Even though Chance is a fool and a traitor. Find their show presented at ThePlaylist.Net and follow them on Twitter for the latest on Noah’s literary agenting and Chance’s work in the Portland arts scene.
