Leslie J. Carter and Michael G. Lindquind, audience members
RR: What did you think of the movie?
LJC: I thought it was interesting. I didn’t really come into it knowing what to expect.
MGL: Yeah, I was expecting awkwardness. I saw his other film. It was very good, and it had a very similar vibe—really crisp aesthetics but a lot of awkward situations. I liked it. I feel like I’m still processing it.
LJC : It definitely plays on on our reactions and emotions.
RR: Have you guys seen any of the other Oscar-nominated films?
MGL: I saw “Call Me By Your Name.” I think that’s nominated for an Oscar.
LJC: I saw “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” I just saw that yesterday.
MGL: Did you like it?
LJC: Yes, definitely. It’s disturbing and, you know, not the best sides of humanity.

RR: What did you think about “The Square?”
JLP: I am still processing, and yet my immediate reaction is that it was gratuitous and uncomfortable to the point of not accomplishing anything.
RR: Have you seen any other Oscar-nominated films?
JLP: I have not, but when the film ended I immediately turned to my friend, and said that I needed to shower, and I couldn’t believe that was nominated for an Oscar.
