In a new feature to Aesthetic Magazine, we are proud to announce that we are the new presenting partner for Toronto-based film podcast Contra Zoom. Your host, Dakota Arsenault, goes in depth about everything film; from lists, to reviews, and more!
On this episode, Dakota plays “Make/Remake” examines how two films that share the same story. It isn’t about what film was better or worse, but how they are similar and different while following the same arcs. Today, we look at Alfred Hitchcock’s 1940 Best Picture winning film Rebecca and this year’s remake directed by Ben Wheatley. Both films tell the story of a young woman who marries a widower and when they return to his seaside estate we learn that his first wife’s mysterious death is still haunting everyone that lives there. Joining Dakota is Rachel Ho an online film reviewer.
