Episode Notes

Women make their way into the spotlight with destructive results. The female force in cinema, then and now. The guerrilla skepticism effort to improve Wikipedia. Update on The Double Feature Movie. The flying Tom Tom returns in possibly the best use of the “how we got here” device. Obsessive, grinding repetition waiting for an opportunity. Mortality by way of performance. Art that vanishes like sand to time. Woah. What it takes to get to the circle. One more, with clarity! Nicolas Winding Refn finds a place in The Neon Demon. Gender roles are not what you think. Cats be hungry. An important moment in tearing open the year’s discussion on art and rape culture. Safe words on set. Art is not safe.
