LATEST EPISODE: In the Not Too Distant Future: Gattaca vs. A Scanner Darkly
JoBlo columnist and movie review Brian Bitner joins Chris and Courtney to talk about two excellent if under-rated science-fiction pictures: Andrew Niccol's Gattaca and Richard Linklater's A Scanner Darkly.
Brian is a movie columnist, correspondent, and reviewer at JoBlo.com, the host of Underneath It All: A Nine Inch Nails podcast, and a musician. He does many things, and well.
Conversation on the show includes discussion of the economic and ethical implications of gene editing and eugenics, the quantity of drugs Philip K. Dick was taking when he wrote A Scanner Darkly, and the amazing talent/lack-thereof of the genius/hack Keanu Reeves.
