Is The Avengers a spectacular all-star superhero success? Is the latest Hollywood war film Act of Valor disgusting propaganda?
The debate cranks up to 11 in this fortnight’s episode of The Parallax Podcast, featuring hosts Luke Buckmaster and Rich Hardy, plus a pop-in from resident cult film expert Zak Hepburn. Every fortnight the Parallax crew discuss the latest flicks at the cinema and on DVD in Australia.
In this episode The Parallax Podcast covers off on:
Joss Whedon’s cross-franchise superhero flick The Avengers;
the sound, fury and politics of Act of Valor;
Oscar-nominated Wasteland, about recyclable art; and
Australian writer/director Jonathan Teplitzky’s powerful drama Burning Man.
