We’re 88Nine’s Justin Barney and Milwaukee Film’s Kpolly. We’re buds, we like cinema — we’re Cinebuds.

Kpolly here. This week on Cinebuds we are discussing the new film from Oscar-winner Juan Jose Campanella, “The Weasels’ Tale.” Campanella, a staple of Argentine cinema, won an Oscar in 2010 for his film “The Secret in Their Eyes.” 

It’s the story of an aging starlet who is saddled with her old director and writer in a big (and amazing house) as she pines for her previous life and the days before they all hated each other. Their retirement is upset as two young real estate agents stumble upon their grounds and a journey of deceit and mayhem ensues.

Comparisons to the popular “Knives Out” are understandable. The differences are a slightly darker vibe and that it’s less of a whodunnit and more of a who’sgonnadunnit…  

We also talk — for longer than I think we intended — about Justin’s first watching of “Blade.”  To NO ONE’S surprise, this conversation is far from over.
