Parasite and Burning

Summary:
I was asked by Russell Hogg to join him on his movie podcast with Agnes Callard and Abe Callard. We discussed Parasite and Burning. Russell labeled the podcast Alex Tabarrok Versus the People, although there was much agreement among the panel with my controversial analysis of Parasite! I also threw in a reactionary reading of Snowpiercer at the end. We also had a fine discussion of Burning and whether the orange peeling is a hint about the meaning of the ending. The post Parasite and Burning appeared first on Marginal REVOLUTION.
