Texas Nightcrawler Alabama Slammer

(Dylan’s Notes)

On today’s episode of Popcorn Politics, Johnny Ruffier and I spoke at length about the Texas Primary Runoffs and Alabama Senate Primary that took place last night.

In Texas, we highlighted 3 races, Texas 10, which featured Mike Seigel running against Pritesh Gandhi to see who will face incumbent Michael McCaul. Seigel ran against him in 2018, losing by 4 points.
We also discussed TX 24, this race was a marquee race for Texas progressives. Kim Olson, a retired member of the Air Brigade, faced Candace Valenzuela, a local organizer. This race is rated a Tossup so the winner here faces a tough election in November.
The final race in Texas was the Senate runoff between MJ Hegar and Royce West. This is a race that is more distinct in strategy than ideology, West is more progressive, but wasn’t the choice of progressives.
Finally Alabama, Tommy Tuberville faced former incumbent Senator and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions gained support with the right-wing populist wing, but Tuberville had the national party and President Trump.

In hour 2, Jeffrey Matte joins me to discuss 2014’s Nightcrawler starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
This is a low profile character study about the obsessions of a sociopath, and how he navigates the world of late-night television.

What strikes me in this film is Gyllenhaal’s performance, Lou Bloom feels like a man who crafted his persona from self-help lessons and motivational speakers.
He’s the caricature of ambition and resolve of a human being. The other thing that stuck out to me was the script.
The writing is incredibly artful, evoking rich images and adding layers upon layers of subtext. It’s both natural and unnerving to watch.
This film deserves more recognition and more praise.
