Episode 124 I Heart Huckabees
It’s no secret that we love to stare into the cold, dark abyss of existential dread. However it may come as a surprise that our guest this week, that rakish bon vivant John Coons, is also bedfellows with cruelty, manipulation, and meaninglessness. His pick, I Heart Huckabees (2004), is a whimsical examination of life, what it means, and the things we tell ourselves to get through it. Boasting a fantastic cast giving excellent performances and a Jon Brion score that ranks among his best, this film asks the tough questions as only a twee, mid-aughts, deconstructed film can. Join us as we discuss Jude Law’s vomit, Isabelle Huppert’s leg hair, and Jason Schwartzman’s kombucha farm this week on Ex Rated Movies!
