Episode Notes

A very British double feature. Well, a somewhat British double feature. Ok so like, half a British double feature anyways. The English make bad coffee (sorry, Charles). Double Feature Year 12 is the year of plots that don’t adequately summarize the film. Blowup has intrigue, murder most foul, and a simple plot. Photography, mimes, and controlling a narrative. Leaving Existentialism 101 to discuss murder. A man searching for a literal and metaphorical propeller. Control and powerlessness. Eric finally learns what Barry Lyndon is. The Kubrick photography. Narration. Not being sure if a film is comedy or not. The epic film, but without the typical arc or lessons. Reading situations wrong. Literal temporarily embarrassed millionaires, for a change. Intimate candlelight.
