This week, bad news abounds as we look into the rumored Annapurna bankruptcy and consider what it means for indie cinema. We also talk about Venom 2, Nate Parker’s comeback via the Venice Film Festival, and Universal’s decision to pull The Hunt from theaters to avoid a political shitstorm. We’re living through a radical technological shift and also a bonkers political moment, and all of it is coming to bear at once. Join us as we stare into the abyss of cinema’s future once again.
