Dec 4, 2021
It’s December, which means lots of awards contenders and Christmas movies for you on Breakfast All Day. Christy and Alonso review Jane Campion’s gorgeous and moving “The Power of the Dog” as well as Paul Verhoeven’s scandalous “Benedetta,” about lesbian nuns in love. Over on Netflix, there’s “Single All the Way,” the gay Christmas rom-com Alonso was born to review. And finally we have “Silent Night,” an uneven mix of cheery British holiday comedy and end-of-the-world thriller. In news, we discuss the New York Film Critics Circle‘s picks, Stephen Sondheim‘s death, the Beatles documentary “Get Back,” the “West Side Story” screening we attended (with a full review coming next week), the Gucci family‘s reaction to “House of Gucci,” Matthew McConaughey‘s decision not to run for Texas governor and the Will Ferrell/Adam McKay split. And over at our Patreon, we have recaps of this week’s “Hawkeye” on Disney+ and episodes 5-6 of “The Great” on Hulu, which are extremely different from each other. Hope you’re staying cozy, and thanks as always for joining us.
