Scott Teems Preaches


Continuing our series on media to watch under quarantine, I interview the great writer and director Scott Teems, on his new film The Quarry (2020) about a drifter who assumes the identity of a preacher. We discuss violence, Christianity, and how the main actors, Shea Whigham and Michael Shannon, explore the tensions in human and divine justice.
