#740: The Nightingale / Dietrich-Von Sternberg #2 - Morocco
Jennifer Kent's follow up to "The Babadook" isn't quite horror, but it is horrific.
Making a film that details the violence — specifically the sexual violence — that colonialism wrought in places like Tasmania in the early 19th century is an honorable endeavor that also makes for a very difficult viewing experience. Adam and Josh find lots to admire in Kent's THE NIGHTINGALE, but question whether the director's decision to make the film so explicit makes it a better one. That review, plus Dietrich in drag and some tough notes for a young Gary Cooper in 1930's MOROCCO, the second film in their Marlene Dietrich/Joseph von Sternberg marathon.
