Ep. 412: Joint Security Area (2000) with Caleb Masters

Welcome back dear listeners to a special episode of the GenreCast! This week, thanks to a Patreon-awarded pick from Keithan S., we've been tasked to talk about Park Chan-wook's early feature Joint Security Area. And, to add to the fun, we're joined by former co-host Caleb Masters. Caleb took some valuable time out of his schedule to join us on this episode. We're having fun talking the psychology of war, Park's use of suspense, the film's approach to murder mystery and victimhood, and much more. Join us now, and don't forget to look for Caleb at The Cinematropolis or listen to The Cinematic Schematic.
