Show notes:

  • Music for tonight’s episode is the understated track “What Have We Done to Each Other?” by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, from the film’s score.
  • Check out Tasha Robinson‘s article on the “Strong Female Characters” problem over at The Dissolve.
  • We spoke of the excellent movie trailer work by Mark Woolen, who did the trailer for Gone Girl. Gizmodo did a feature on his work this past week, including past trailers for The Social Network and A Serious Man. Woolen also cut two trailers for upcoming films that we plan to review on the podcast: Birdman and The Theory of Everything. Check out all of his trailers here.
  • CORRECTION: The couple in the Ozarks were Greta (Lola Kirke) and Jeff (Boyd Holbrook). We mistakenly identified Scott McNairy as the actor who played Jeff – he actually played Tommy O’Hara, Amy’s former classmate.
