We’re getting deep this week, as we take a look at two films we’ve been dying to include … pretty much since the beginning. This week we’re discussing science, faith, and first contact through James Cameron’s The Abyss versus Robert Zemeckis’ Contact. Two films about making first contact from completely different perspectives, these films gave us the foundation to discuss the toxicity of organized religion, the importance of faith, and the complexities of scientific discovery. Oh, and Ariel talks about what makes The Abyss so cripplingly terrifying.
Next week we will be discussing Westerns for the very first time on A Frame Apart. Yes, we will be following the Man with No Name in a little mini-First-To-Last episode on A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
