Another day, another episode of The ReelGood Podcast, is what we’d say if episodes of The ReelGood Podcast came out every day. But they don’t. They come out whenever. We can’t say it.

Little known fact – between the recording of our last episode and the recording of THIS episode the most recent addition to the TRP team, Zoe, broke BOTH HER ARMS! Not in a film-related quarrel, especially since Blakey isn’t nearly strong enough to break two arms, but rather while she was skateboarding with a friendo. It just goes to show, if you skateboard, both your arms will break.

Zoe’s out for this ep and Derek is in, and we’re talking about Darren Aronofsky’s Mother!. The film, not his actual mother.


“A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. From filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream), mother! stars Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer in this riveting psychological thriller about love, devotion and sacrifice.”

Sit back, grab a glass, filled to the brim, of Fireball Whisky, rack up some a-grade ketamine, lube up your entire body with Vaseline, shave your arm pits, wear copies of ‘Hamlet’ as shoes and enjoy the latest episode of The ReelGood Podcast.
