Ep. #113-Unhinged

This week, we continue our look at 2020’s very strange summer movie season by tackling the first wide release of the summer–and it was a doozy. Hinges become untethered in the thriller UNHINGED, directed by Derrick Borte. Russell Crowe plays a mentally unstable incel who is no longer hinged due to a severe bout of road rage, and he is about to make the life of single mother a living hell. Dude only wanted a courtesy tap; now he is completely without hinges. Does this modern-day exploitation flick deliver the goods? Is a man strapped to a chair, set on fire, and used as a human shield? And what was the catering budget on this film, anyway? All will be addressed.
