EP 179: Videodrome

https://media.zencast.fm/almost-educational/179mp3

 

This week Patrick welcomes guest host Cassidy of the film review MacGuffin Podcast.  

Buckle in for a crash course in body horror, Canadian trivia, and media studies.

Patrick attempts to put the show into three buckets.

Bucket 1:  Who is David Cronenberg and what type of film is Videodrome?

Bucket 2: Does Videodrome have a plot?   Is it a series of vignettes?  Is it just a basic concept filmed for the audience?

Bucket 3: The media is the message.  We discuss the themes and ideas that the film explores and how it maybe the best suited film to predict our unreality media landscape of the 21st century.
