Movie Club – Mint in Box – Being There (1979)

In between the series, Jonathan and Corey like to do a palate cleanser which will either be Mint in Box or Now Streaming. It’s a one-off to give a break between jumping into another series. Corey was up to pick this time around and went with Being There (1979). She owned this on Criterion Bluray but hadn’t watched it yet. Hence the “mint in box” of it all.

As far as the podcast goes, each episode features an in-depth review of the movie for the week. They begin with a spoiler-free review before diving in completely after the needed spoiler warning. However, before getting into the review of the week, Jonathan and Corey discuss what other movies they’ve seen since the last episode as well as anything else they feel like discussing. To help them decide which of the many films to watch each month they started creating themes for them all. Be sure to follow them on Social Media @berkreviews and @coreyrstarr

Being There (1979)
