Filmspotting 725 (04/19/19): Her Smell / Stanley Donen Marathon Pt 1 -- On the Town

From WBEZ | Part of the Filmspotting (weekly series) series | 53:59


Elisabeth Moss smells like teen spirit. In Alex Ross Perry's "Her Smell," Elisabeth Moss gives a performance that, for Adam and Josh, evokes Gena Rowlands' iconic work in "A Woman Under the Influence" and a punk-rock Lady Macbeth. Moss's Becky Something is the drug-addled, manic and abusive lead singer of a '90s-era rock band that's fallen on hard times. It's also, according to Adam, the best film of the year so far. Also on the show: 1949's "On the Town," the first in a four-film Stanley Donen Marathon. Plus, Josh's report from this year's Ebert Interruptus.
