How do you navigate a world in which nothing seems secure? Mike and Dan discuss Ken Loach's Sorry We Missed You (2020), his portrait of a family dealing with the stresses of the gig economy. For a film that seems under-directed, this descent into a middle-class Dante's Inferno works so well because of Loach's skill and the actors' performances. The guys talk about how the film is about fear more than greed, the social reality of bodily functions, and the ways in which the characters try to hold onto their dignity--and each other. So drop those keys and give it a listen!
