Wade and Kevin have gentrification on the mind this week, as they review two films about unwelcome new arrivals in the neighborhood. The unwelcome residents are white hipsters in Carlos Lopez Estrada’s Blindspotting, a drama about race and perspective starring Daveed Diggs of Hamilton fame. In the sci-fi/thriller indie The Endless, the new neighbor is an otherworldly force revered by a backwoods cult. Will two brothers and erstwhile cult members get to the bottom of the mystery surrounding this entity? Find out on this week’s episode!
