MUDBOUND / CALL ME BY YOUR NAME
Bijou Banter returns in a heated episode with guest stars Spencer Williams and Eli Boonin-Vail. Featuring a discussion of Mudbound, arguments over Call Me By Your Name, and Sam & Eli's assessment of the Netflix distribution model.
"In the brief annals of mainstream queer cinema, Call Me by Your Name falls in line with Moonlight in taking a resolutely non-hysterical, non-polemical approach to homoeroticism, treating sexual encounters with a kind of unhurried, tactile sensuality. Society, as enforcer and inhibitor, plays very little part, as both stories take place outside the bounds of middle-class morality—but from different, even opposing ends of the spectrum."
