Stand By Me
The Canon #92 September 5, 2016
Devin and Amy follow the tracks this week to talk about the classic Rob Reiner-directed 1986 film “Stand By Me.” They address the use of the unreliable narrator before Amy explains what the films relates about “past, present, and future” people. They then compare the acting abilities of young Corey Feldman and River Phoenix, Devin explains what elements of the film he perceives as homoerotic undercurrents, and finally, they debate the merits of the yellow-toned cinematography.
