17 IN A GLASS CAGE II

This episode was a long time in the making. The initial conversation in this episode took place over half a year ago. What began as some friction over which genre this film belongs to, became an unlistenable argument between Danny and Pappy over Freud’s Pleasure Principle and Death Drive. The boys recently sat down to revisit the conversation and managed to replace the previous Freud discussion with a much more productive one.

14 GROTESQUE I

One of the more recent films notorious for its violence, we get into Koji Shiraishi’s 2009 Grotesque. This is Hot Takes where we give off the cuff reactions as we dive deep into Japanese torture porn. While opinions vary as to what the movie is about and how good it is, it definitely made all a little squirmy while watching.

12 HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER I

In this week’s episode, Pappy and David try to get to Danny with John McNaughton’s serial killer film. Due to Danny’s fear that he might fall victim to a home invasion at any given moment, Pappy and David are pretty confident this one will put a crack in the armour Danny has been building up. Join us for Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer Hot Takes – everything is off the dome, gut reactions at we make sense of this cult classic.

11 BREAKING HER WILL II

Hand-picked by Danny, the boys watch Bill Zebub’s Breaking Her Will (2009). David makes interesting claims about the effectiveness of torture scenes. Danny seems to defend the trained talents of Bill Zebub’s actors. And Pappy leads a discussion on the panopticon. An important term is coined that appears in the rest of the season, and Danny, David and Pappy are tested to come up with their own awesome director pseudonym.

This episode, we dive into the Bill Zebub’s low-budget psychological shock thriller Breaking Her Will. David struggles through his recap of the film we had finished moments earlier, and Pappy defends his character from “Who would you be?”. Danny continuously tries to force the conversation towards the films soundtrack and set.

7 MURDER SET PIECES III

Time gets away from us as we dive into part three of Murder Set Pieces. This episode, Pappy leads a discussion on Empathy, we subject the killer in MSP to various psychopath tests and we all get a little homework – filling out individual empathy tests to see who's the least empathetic of the group. We promise this is the last episode on Murder Set Pieces.

6 MURDER SET PIECES II

Danny deals with pent up anxiety that’s built up since last episode. He almost goes Full Henry when explaining his reaction in part one. Pappy and David play everything from Devil’s Advocate and therapist to listening ears as Danny’s works out some guilt on the air. And we all get ready for a talk about empathy.

5 MURDER SET PIECES I

David and Pappy try to turn up the heat on Danny, but they’re all left somewhat speechless after watching Nick Palumbo’s Murder-Set-Pieces (2004) – for reasons they didn’t quite expect. They introduce a 3-Minute Drill plot summary in an attempt to make sense of a messy collage of extreme images.
