In this Movie-Go-Round New to Two Brett brought us Liev Schreiber’s sole directorial work, Everything Is Illuminated. What starts as an aggressively quirky story of a shy, compulsive collector turns into something much deeper as he takes a journey to learn about a woman who saved his ancestor. David and Nicole watched it for the first time, and all three of us talked about things like the movie’s dramatic shift in tone, Liev Schreiber’s choices as a director, drivers with seeing-eye bitches, and the weirdness that is Gogol Bordello. Check it out!
Next week’s film is a Netflix Roulette pick! We’re watching Phantom of the Theatre, a 2016 fantasy horror film.
