1-2 Cutting Moments I & II Show Notes

Cutting Moments (1997)
Director: Douglas Buck
Starring: Nicca Ray, Gary Betsworth and Jared Barsky
Produced by: Douglas Buck

Danny, David and Pappy kick off That’s Dark with Douglas Buck’s Cutting Moments (1997). In the series opener, they forget to do a plot summary, make their way through some psychoanalysis and the male gaze while Danny spends half the episode denying and/or coming to terms with the truth about this movie. Spending a considerable amount of energy on trying to understand the film’s female perspective, they find themselves on the verge of being “Mindbucked.”
