Highly Suspect Reviews: Loving

Jeff Nichols is a director who has been a critic’s darling for some time but definitely with films that at least brushed up against being genre. His Take Shelter, Mud, and Midnight Special were all giant hits here in the House of Us. So what do we think of his latest opus, Loving? It’s certainly a departure in some ways for the director but his most serious film yet.

The true story tells the tale of Richard and Mildred Loving, who fell in love, got married, and then the state of Virginia told them, “Get out or go to jail”. Which eventually led to a groundbreaking Supreme Court case. But this plays out differently that you probably imagine. Listen to Chris, Richard, and JC tell you how.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
