A movie podcast where a new(ish) release inspires a conversation on two older films with a similar theme but different approaches.

Mar 3, 2016

On this episode I’m joined by this podcast’s resident therapist, Derek Stewart, who you may remember from the 45 YEARS episode, to plot against perfection. In GATTACA, Ethan Hawke plays a man whose future accomplishments have already been genetically determined at birth, and his plan with Jude Law to surpass them. Then we have THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY, where Ben Stiller and Matt Dillon attempt to scheme their way into Cameron Diaz's heart, in a film that presents a more horrifying present than seen in GATTACA’s future. But first we travel back to the past in the new screen version of Jesse Owens' story in RACE.
