087: SFFCH – A Simple Plan

087 A Simple Plan SF

This time on Spoiler Filled Film Conversation Hooray, We make a rare journey to Sam Raimi land for his 1998 film ‘A Simple Plan’. Yes, it’s a story about a pile of stolen money and what happens to the people who find it and resolve to keep it for themselves, with dire consequences. Join Rich, Jamie and Abi as they talk it through like reasonable adults and ponder the merits of this latest choice of Jamie. It’s a rare Bill Paxton-led film, with few likeable characters and several instant transitions to evil. What’s with the curiously bodged plan to keep the money, are the smart characters really dumb and vice-versa? Is it typical Raimi fare or exceptional? When was the rule about bumbling sheriffs officially built into American cinema? How would you deal with it all? None of those questions answered, and more! (Ep 87, Rec 2015)
