Manuela "Mani" Lazic (@ManiLazic on Twitter) is a film critic/columnist for Little White Lies and other publications. Her work can be found here.She is from France but currently resides in London with her sister.
She was a guest on the Near Dark episode of Blank Check. She was interested in the sexual overtones that Kathryn Bigelow's vampire thriller provided. She is a big fan of other similarly themed thrillers such as Basic Instinct, Body Double and Fatal Attraction.
☀#TheTwoFriends were also lucky enough to have Mani as a guest on The Parent Trap episode of Something's Podda Cast, along with her identical twin sister Elena Lazic. What perfect thematic synergy with the film under discussion!
Mani and Elena sound enough alike that even their own mother has mistaken them for one another on the phone, so don't feel bad if you can't tell them apart on the podcast - just think of it as a bargain where we get to hear twice as many interesting things said by the same voice.
