The Filmlosophers and Intern Amy brave the chaotic and troubling mind of director Ari Aster and come out unsure of what to say about A24’s latest project, Beau is Afraid. The Discombobulated Dissenters attempt to deconstruct the thoughts of their mind in a way that vaguely conveys their opinions on the function -and dysfunction- of this film. Has the efforts of filmmaker Ari Aster and the like really retread new ground with their avant-garde style of directing? Or has the welcome of A24 and its edgier projects become far too worn? Grab your paintbrushes & your popcorn, & tune in to find out in this week’s episode of The Filmlosophers!
