Death by Alogrithm: The Search for Movies with Style, Substance, and Soul.

How did things go off the rails so quickly? Jim and Teal quickly find themselves down a rabbit hold of Robert Zemeckis’ making, and the only way out of it is through the films of Yorgos Lanthimos. Teal finally watched Alps and Dogtooth, and he’s all in with the daring Greek director’s original filmic vision. 

But that then sends Teal into complaint mode, as he found himself watching two paint-by-numbers genre movies on Netflix that were so devoid of style and substance, he swears they were designed by an algorithm.

Sticking with the genre theme, Jim does some exploring of his own, and makes his way down under for a little Ozploitation. Can anyone say Howling III: The Marsupials?

This episode is full of weird, wild twists and turns. Enjoy!

  1. Great episode! Really enjoy listening to the pod. May I suggest you guys talking about a few Joseph Losey films on the Criterion Channel. I recently watched The Servant and Mr. Klein both on the channel and they blew my mind. The Servant has a lot of similarities to Parasite would be fascinated to hear you guys compare/contrast those two films. Thanks again for the fun episodes.
