Load Bearing Beams

Jul 26, 2017

What do we really know?

Is the future predetermined?

Are human beings really free?

These questions and more are addressed and resolved in the two movie selections Load Bearing Beams, episode 9: Alex Proyas's Knowing (2009) [03:30] and Amy Heckerling's Clueless (1995) [32:10].

Matt argues that even though Knowing is lumped in with the terrible cash-in movies of Nicolas Cage's later career, it's actually a thrilling and thought-provoking film. Is he right? And could anything be scarier than a weirdo kid furiously scribbling numbers on a piece of paper? 

Also: Laci explains how Clueless is why she's able to sleep at night.
