Forget family and good health, Visser of Ozcast fans have Episode 13.2 to be thankful for!
Yup, hot off the heels of Episode 13.1 (it’s as if Episode 13.2 was PREORDAINED!), we bring you a special holiday installment of the VoO.
In this episode, we discuss our first Netflix Pick of the week, the Javier Bardem-driven film Biutiful. We sift through 2.5 hours of depression porn in an attempt to justify its selection in the Visser of Ozcast cannon. Do we succeed? Only YOU can be the judge. We also settle on our next—and hopefully more accessible—Netflix Instant pick of the week: Network. Ya, it was made in 1976, but Stephen Colbert said it is his favorite movie, so there is your ringing endorsement, skeptics.
To ensure we met our avant-garde movie podcast discussion quotient for the holiday weekend, we also get around to discussing the year’s most polarizing film (no, not Happy Feet 2, silly…get it, polar—ah, nevermind!), Tree of Life. I bet Terrence Malick would have loved that joke. Overall, we enjoyed the film, but are divided on whether we would ever watch it again. BOOM: Criticism, thy name is Visser of Ozcast.
