In Episode 61, Doug and Dirty A talk about Paul Thomas Anderson’s twisty Thomas Pynchon adaptation, Inherent Vice as well as Selma, a film that is MUCH better than the Oscar love it did NOT receive when the nominations were announced. First, though, they kick things off with an early look at Matthew Vaughn’s latest, Kingsman: the Secret Service. Take a listen!
Selma made me angry. Seeing the willful ignorance from the white South in the 1960s and the disgusting horrors they inflicted on the African-American citizens there made me angry. It wasn’t just loathing of the perpetrators, but the fact that these events really happened and they’re still happening today. Yes, Selma made me angry, and it’s one of the best films of the year.
