Spoilerpiece Theatre Episode 162: THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD

“Spoilerpiece Theatre” is a weekly movie podcast where I talk about new releases with fellow BOFCA critics Dave Riedel and Kris Jenson. We don’t give a shit about spoilers. We just want to talk about the movies.

In Episode 162 below, we review The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Breaker Morant, The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman’s Portrait Photography, Crossing Delancey, and Aguirre, The Wrath of God. Dave met Daniel from France! He was in town on vacation and they bumped into each other at the Coolidge Corner in Brookline. Dave tells that story, and then the guys have a few things to say about Charlottesville, VA, and then they get into the movies. I start things off with The Hitman’s Bodyguard (7:53), a movie I describe as “Not as bad as I thought it would be.” Then we head down under to Breaker Morant (20:29), and Dave spends waaaaay too much time talking with a terrible Oz accent. Kris covers Errol Morris’ The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman’s Portrait Photography starting at 30:27. I take the guys on a stroll down Amnesia Lane to Crossing Delancey at 38:15, which is a delightfully sweet romantic comedy from the late 1980s. Finally, Kris and Dave cover Werner Herzog’s Aguirre, The Wrath of God at 48:00, which screened on Monday, August 14 in 35mm. Everyone should have access to rep theaters like the Coolidge.
