‘John And The Hole’ Review: An Atmospherically Cryptic Puzzle Box (Sundance 2021)

On this episode of The Global Film Podcast, Editor-In-Chief and Host Diego Andaluz reviews Pascual Sisto’s latest film John And The Hole. Joined by contributors Valerie Complex (Variety), Jeffery Zhang (Strange Harbors), and Tessa Smith, they discuss their in-depth thoughts on the technical and thematic strengths and shortcomings of the film, among other notable highlights.

While exploring the neighboring woods, 13-year-old John discovers an unfinished bunker — a deep hole in the ground. Seemingly without provocation, he drugs his affluent parents and older sister and drags their unconscious bodies into the bunker, where he holds them captive. As they anxiously wait for John to free them from the hole, the boy returns home, where he can finally do what he wants.

John And The Hole premiered at the 2021 edition of the Sundance Film Festival. Listen to our review at the Sundance Special episode below or here on your preferred podcast platform.
