The Conversations: Trouble Every Day

I’m pleased to announce that The Conversations: Trouble Every Day is live at The House Next Door. In this edition, Ed Howard and I go into detail about that 2001 Claire Denis film and then step back a bit to discuss the horror genre and whether Trouble Every Day belongs to it. If you’ve never seen Trouble Every Day, here's an excuse to watch it. And here’s my advice: go blindly. This is one of those films that’s evocative and yet elusive. Rather than letting a critic’s review set your expectations, see how the film speaks to you.

This is the least mainstream film to serve as the sole focus for The Conversations, and that’s part of the fun of it. (Next month will be quite the opposite.) So, if you haven’t yet, check out Trouble Every Day and then head on over to The House Next Door. As usual, Ed and I hope that our discussion leads to an even larger conversation among readers. The comments are always open.
