In this episode of the show, we are taking a look at Sam Levinson’s Assassination Nation and scratching our heads as to why this jazzy and colourful social satire has all but completely disappeared from cultural consciousness a mere few years after its initial release. We delve into the film’s place in a long lineage of culturally significant movies that (perhaps sometimes unwittingly) managed to capture the spirit of their respective eras, take stock of the film’s thematic depth and breadth of scope of its social commentary, attempt to parse its inspirations and much, much more! Tune in and enjoy!
