BEHOLD! The triumphant return of CHRIS!!
Here is another episode with 3 degrees of that guy/gal. Mads Mikkelsen has built quite an audience - known as Madsturbators - despite a limited number of films in the U.S. since the 1st one we are talking about. Though he is a hero of Danish cinema, it was television that brought him back to many of us in recent years.
Join us as we push our envelope further by devoting some time to talking about TV (as always, no spoilers). Time schedules made it so we were only able to cover 2 films, but we will give you some lowdown on A Royal Affair after we get a chance to glance at it.
For the Fannibals -
Here is the Scott Thompson skit that Matt almost quoted correctly: Dinosaurs
For those Bound to Bond -
Here are links for 2 of the 3 documentaries on the 2-dvd set for Casino Royale: Becoming Bond. Bond for Real. The 3rd is blocked by MGM, so go rent it from your local video store.. the strongest of the docs is about Bond Girls. A fascinating look at the changing nature of the characters by the actors themselves. Worth the time and more directly insightful than we are here in our podcast tower on gender norms.
If you're still reading this: good work, you're a trooper. The music overwhelming the (obviously) American trailer for the Hunt linked up top is a perfect example of what we're talking about compared to the movie itself.
