Breaking The Waves (Episode 58) - Hot Date with Dan and Vicky
Release Date: 11/17/2017
Emily Watson had never acted for the camera before her career making and Oscar nominated turn in Lars von Trier's Breaking the Waves. The 1996 film was the first film von Trier made after founding the film movement Dogma 95 which set down specific rules for any film created under the banner - namely, no filming on built sets, no use of post-dubbed music and no CGI. With Breaking the Waves, von Trier adhered to none of those rules and in turn created what many feel to be his most successful and accessible film.
After a busy summer, Dan and Vicky are back at 330 Studios covering their first Lars von Trier film, Breaking the Wave. They catch us up on their lives and the many things they've watched recently. Vicky expounds on TV shows like Santa Clarita Diet, Top of the Lake, The Exorcist, American Vandal and the George Michael documentary Freedom while Dan checks in with Big Little Lies and Channel Zero. And they both gives us their thoughts on the movies Blade Runner 2049, The Snowman, The Bad Seed, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Fifty Shades Darker, Gerald's Game, Nocturnal Animals, and Happy Death Day among others.
