Show Notes

in the latest episode, we pit bong joon-ho's palme d'or and academy award winning work with john ford's largely forgotten 1933 film. the comparison may seem random at first, but putting these two movies up against one another teases out the depths, details, and divergences of these two richly layered and ultimately very overpowering motion pictures. that, of course, sets the stage for a more thoughtful pondering of their makers, each oscar winners for best director.
