9 – Flatliners

With a weary sigh, we get to Flatliners. Ellen Page, James Norton, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev and Kiersey Clemons expand their minds and run around shitting themselves in fear.

Questions abound: Why did they call this Flatliners when the obviously correct title is Hot Doctors? Was Kiefer Sutherland wasted? Is it wise to be wasted while appearing in a film? In precisely how many millions of ways is the film inconsistent? Just how stupid and blind is its attitude towards the very real problems it presents? Does it make sense as a horror flick? Are Mike and José too obsessed with the cast’s attractiveness? Are we perverts? Most importantly, who’s hotter: the ginger guy or the hot girl?

All this and Catholic guilt too.

With José Arroyo of First Impressions and Michael Glass of Writing About Film.
