Show Notes

Join us to tackle the serpentine narrative of "Predestination." Together, we dissect the film's complex time travel mechanics and the resulting paradoxes, while mulling over the philosophical quandaries of predestination versus free will. Susana brings her sharp insights to our analysis of the protagonist's gender transition and its pivotal role in the ever-spiraling time loop, a discussion that is as mind-bending as the film's plot itself.

As we unravel the motivations behind the bartender's actions and the chilling sanity (or lack thereof) of the fizzle bomber, we're not just dissecting a story here – we're examining the ethical entanglements of time travel, an exercise that will leave your moral compass spinning. Sarah Snook's riveting performance earns our praise, and we can't help but marvel at how the film achieves its ambitious vision on a modest budget. If you're drawn to the conundrums of time travel and its implications on identity, this is the conversation that promises to fuel endless contemplation long after the credits roll.
