    The Power of the Dog (directed by Jane Campion) - Anything to Pick on This Bone?

    Explore your creativity at http://skillshare.com/SMTM and get a free trial of Skillshare Premium Membership.

    This was a tough one. Is there a lot to pick off the bone that is The Power of the Dog? Why do we need a revelation in our films? What we get into in this chat is: why does certain stuff resonate? What makes a film force us to lean in? We don't even get into Capitalism (too much) - but we gotta mention Austin saw this at the Sydney Film Festival. Enjoy!

    Lord of the Plains. Outlaws. In this chat, we get into embodying the mythos of the West and self-mythologizing, this film as a post-western, and, of course, a dash of capitalism - and more! Enjoy!

Missed

I’m disappointed this podcast was canceled. Such great perspectives with fun hosts. There’s nothing quite like it.

Cudda been a conteda

Late to the party but the fare was still fresh and enjoyable… but for the presence of Austin’s self-aggrandizing punditry. He wields his seemingly junior college level education with scant regard for the average listener as well as his co-hosts as if he’s desperate to record his voice and small beer intellectualism (not to dwell on his avowed Marxism) for posterity. I apologize for sounding so catty but the fellow’s jibber-jabber is cringeworthy and prevents my giving this program five stars.

MoabFlapjack ,

Rest in Power

I can’t believe this show is over. A real misstep for the big bosses. I’ve listened to every episode at least three times and still find interesting new things to think about. I’ll never know the meaning of so many movies. Tragic.
