Episode Notes

Gangs of ladies and imprisoned female empowerment. Zach Snyder’s Sucker Punch as an original film. The Wizard of Oz fantasy movie template. Hamster style comes back again and again. The many layers of Sucker Punch. A fantasy so bad it necessitates it’s own fantasy. Making you want to see the dance. How Sucker Punch delivers on several promises you expect from all-female casts. Sucker Punch as a commentary on objectification via reality checks. Is the film pro-feminist or anti-feminist? How music adds its own story. Female covers. Male soundtrack perversion. Bjork’s new versions of Army of Me. The visuals of Alex Pardee. Speculation on the R rated version of the film. Late night film watching with Switchblade Sisters. Quentin Tarantino’s Rolling Thunder Pictures. Director Jack Hill. A women in prison film outside of prison. Men in Switchblade Sisters. Writing better than you intend to shoot.
