The Neon Demon (2016) feat. DeVaughn Taylor
For this week's episode, we're headed to Los Angeles to become stars in the fashion industry with Nicolas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon (2016). Tagging along for the cannibalism and necrophilia is Bloody Blunts Cinema Club's DeVaughn Taylor who has a unique appreciation for spooky nonsense and has a pretty killer theory about what Ruby, Sarah and Gigi are really up to. CW: sexual assault, necrophilia
Up for discussion: connections to American Psycho, Abbey Lee and Jena Malone appreciation, why Trace finds the film so uncomfortable and a sprawling discussion regarding accusations about the film's misogyny.

- Hughes, Kayleigh. Vox. "The Neon Demon tries to both fetishize and vilify young girls. It fails."
- Wilford, Lauren. Gradient. "I'm a feminist, and I love The Neon Demon"
