Episode 303 – “Physics” – Premieres Friday, October 15 at 10 pm ET/9c on AMC and AMC+
What’s the downside of having psychic powers? The idea of being able to read minds or manipulate objects without moving a muscle is an attractive fantasy. But what if those powers showed you things you wished you hadn’t seen? What if people wanted to exploit your gift for their own sinister ends? Worse than that: what if someone with psychic abilities turned their powers against you?
Movies about psychics play on the ego of our species – humans rose to the top thanks to their large, multilayered brains – but they also exploit our insecurities. We understand little about cognition and the nature of free will, and we know we’re just a brain tumor away from radical personality shifts and psychotic behavior. The fear of psychic powers gone wrong is the fear of our own turbulent minds.
This episode features a wide range of psychic films made by superstar creators, including David Cronenberg’s Scanners and The Dead Zone, Mike Flanagan’s thrilling adaptation of Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep, Brian DePalma’s The Fury, Sam Raimi’s The Gift, Peter Jackson’s The Frighteners and Tim Burton’s horror/comedy masterpiece Beetlejuice.
Vogue Australia’s June/July 2020 cover with Cate Blanchett now on print
Fiona Lowry is an Archibald Prize-winning artist and has painted Blanchett to create an image that spoke about the moment in time for both artists. Lowry explored the option of painting her work mid-Covid, and her initial thoughts about anxiety about the future, constant cleaning of ourselves and our homes, to becoming an opportunity for reflection and personal change. ‘My initial thought was to see Cate coming out of the water, reflecting an idea of cleansing and renewal. But after we emailed back and forth about what we were experiencing felt, it became about stillness and the idea of solitude and how it can make us reflect. In retrospect it was such a fleeting moment, and the chaos was still swirling around us, but it was a moment I’m sure we will always remember.’
Cate was photographed by her husband, Andrew Upton, at their home in the UK and Fiona describes how ‘I imagined Cate wearing a Vampire’s Wife dress and wonderfully, designer Susie Cave sent some dresses to use for the shoot. Her dresses are so dreamy and nostalgic, and I had read somewhere that she described the dresses as having a ‘subversive mystery’. I also like my paintings to sit within that mystery and often what painting can do is try to unravel or understand the structure of the underlying dream or mystery that we are embedded in.”
Lowry’s paintings are done with acrylic spray paint and have an ethereal and soft dreamy effect. Cate has described the work as wonderful, matching the serenity of her expression.
