Episode Info:

Holy centennial, Birdman! I mean, holy centennial. Birdman! For our 100th episode, we take on the only superhero movie ever to win Best Picture, 2014's Birdman, or (The Unexpected Virtue Ignorance).

Is there anything objectively more important about "high-art" theatre compared to "low-art" blockbusters? What is the relationship between love and truth? Is Michael Keaton actually just a real superhero pretending to be an actor this whole time?

Join us for our 100th episode special edition two-fisted, power-packed, knock down, drag out, cosmic collection of critical theory engaging with the metatext of the film as both mimesis and self-justified cultural artifact. With a Birdman in it.
