Genevieve (#86)

Vroom! Vroom! Honk! Honk! Get out of our way! Brendan and Jason talk all about the 1953 road movie Genevieve – a perfect example of a quaint film with today’s modern lens that certainly would have been somewhat scandalous when it was released. The guys talk all about the heavily-coded sexual innuendo, the realistic portrayal of relationship arguments, the simplistic premise working to the film’s advantage, the influence on films like Cannonball Run and It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and much more.

The guys also roll the dice to find out what they’ll be watching next week. Join us, won’t you?
