In this house, we review The House, a new stop-motion animated dark anthology film from Nexus Studio, which is now available on Netflix. Afterward, we do a deeper dive into Joachim Trier’s The Worst Person in the World, a dark romantic dramedy we both selected as one of our favorite films of 2021, which is now hitting limited release in North America. Last, we settle in for The Pink Cloud, a Brazilian Sundance film from last year that might just change your mind on pandemic movies being a little “too soon.” Also, check out Jon’s video/essay, “Why Critics Hate the Movies You Love,” which gets brought up in the show.
