Promising Young Mnuchin

Promising Young Woman just took home the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay and critics can't stop telling us how IMPORTANT it is. But is Emerald Fennell's brand of sanitized lily-white feminism truly what we need to navigate our neoliberal hellscape? More importantly, why would you bother watching it in the first place when a deranged auteur-driven Day-Glo nightmare like Me, You, Madness exists?

Maybe these aren't the films we need, but they're certainly the ones we deserve.

We're joined by Film Inquiry's Editor-in-Chief, Kristy Strouse, to determine once and for if Louise Linton should be the only person allowed to make movies anymore.

THIS WEEK: Promising Young Woman (2020) and Me, You, Madness (2021).
