A film too sexual for audiences to take at its deeper meaning. A film too awards-season for audiences to not want it to be about a sex joke. In this episode of the podcast, wade into the cultural impact of the films Lolita (1997) and My Octopus Teacher. Lolita, a drama film about a man’s obsession with a teenage girl, sparked controversy and debate upon its release for its depiction of pedophilia. The book was similarly not spared… but just what is Lolita? My Octopus Teacher, a documentary about a man’s relationship with an octopus, became a hit on streaming platforms and won numerous awards. Both films explore themes of love, obsession, and the blurred lines between humans and nature. Whether you’re a fan of taboos or tentacles, this episode has something for everyone.
