    This was a very helpful episode. I spent most of its duration furiously adding movies to my iTunes wishlist.

    I think something is wrong with this Episode, David didn’t mention “Cloud Atlas”???

      If you like humanity, the world, joy and life itself, you’ll LOVE Cloud Atlas!

      – David

        Well David,

        If you like Cloud Atlas, you should see DW Griffith’s “Intolerance: A Story of Love Throughout the Ages”.

        If you like your stories with a twist of German Nihilism and Expressionism, watch Fritz Lang’s “Destiny”.

        If you like all that stuff mentioned above and want to see it parodied by Buster Keaton, watch “Three Ages”.

    Inspired by a movie I just watched today–if you loved The Babadook, you’ll like Let’s Scare Jessica to Death.

    • Maggie says:

      Let’s Scare Jessica to Death is a great, weird picture too few people have seen (it also has one of my favorite titles ever).

      My favorite “If you like…” recommendation to give people is: if you like Zodiac check out Joon-ho Bong’s Memories of a Murder. Like Zodiac, it’s inspired by a serial murder cold case and focuses on the devastation it causes the community and the people who are trying to solve the case. It’s also great to show people who are interested in Joon-ho Bong after Snowpeircer.

        Ha – just listened to the last 10 minutes of the episode! Same wavelength, I guess.

        Another one then, If you like Inception check out Paprika, an animated film from Japan that has characters going into dreams. While Inception is more of a heist film, Paprika is a more fantasy based – but it’s stunning to watch.

        • Caleb says:

          Paprika is excellent! There’s also a B-movie from 1990 called Brain Dead (the Bill Pullman/Bill Paxton one), that I feel has a very fun, low-rent Inception-vibe to it. Lots of getting lost in realities that turn out to be dreams and whatnot. One of my favorites that doesn’t get much attention beyond the double “Bill”.
