November 6, 2020

In heaven, everything is fine. 

We keep Season 2 rolling by examining David Lynch's independent art-horror surrealist classic Eraserhead! It's weird, depressing, and wonderful. We talk about the magic of Lynch's work and why even the technical problems with this film are artful.

Important links to support Black Lives Matter:

 

This week, we dig into a topic suggested by a listener! Maestro and the Doctor read the short story “The Minority Report” by Philip K. Dick and watched the Steven Spielberg film of the same name. We talk about the role of prose in conveying a story, why Joe needs a character he can root for, and the challenges of adapting conceptual science fiction into an action film. It’s always the most fun when Maestro and the Doc disagree. Thanks to the listener who sent us this episode idea!
