Collateral Beauty (2016; David Frankel) – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 13
“Shed your skin.”
Abstract concepts Daniel Barnes and Corky McDonnell struggle to find any beauty, collateral or otherwise, in David Frankel’s 2016 “catastro-fuck of the shittiest order.”
Despite a cast that includes six former Oscar nominees (and two winners), including Will Smith, Edward Norton, Kate Winslet and Helen Mirren, Collateral Beauty is essentially a rich person’s Hallmark Hall of Fame movie.
Daniel and Corky cut through the treacle to discuss Domino rallies, skin shedding, Heaven experts and CSI: Cleveland, all while scheming to digitally remove themselves from the entire episode.
