In this episode of the show we are indulging in a truly deep dive into Bringing Out The Dead, an underseen and underrated effort from Martin Scorsese, written by Paul Schrader and starring Nicolas Cage. Over the course of this rather long and twisty conversation we attempt to unpack the thematic richness hidden within this film which includes (among others) seeing it as a spiritual successor to Taxi Driver and a precursor to First Reformed, a deeply personal statement from Scorsese himself, a love letter to NY paramedics, a heap of biblical metaphors and much, much more. So join in for the cutting film talk and stay for the ancillary confessions and completely unsolicited tangential conversations that give this podcast its uniquely insane energy!
Tune in and enjoy!
