Yes, we know it was last week, but thanks to the rerelease on DVD of the schlocky Troma horror flick Mother’s Day, we here at Sound on Sight devised a novel way to pay tribute to our dear matriarchal holiday: the rest of the hour is devoted to the greatest movies ever made…according to our mothers. As a result, we’ll be talking about Hitchcock’s freaky 1964 psychological thriller Marnie, Terence Malick’s 1973 debut Badlands, and the Judi Dench-starring 2001 biopic of Alzheimer’s-stricken author Iris Murdoch, simply entitled Iris.
