On a special Canada Day crossover host Andre Goulet teams up with the sensational socialist film crit of Kino Lefter's Abdul, Laura and Evan! Join the gang for a hallucinogenic history tour as they unpack Matthew Rankin's surreal 2019 not-quite-biopic 'The 20th Century', featuring beloved bachelor and long-time Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King.

Thrill to analysis of the artificiality of the Canadian subconscious! Shudder as the deepest fears about our country are made manifest! Marvel at the greatest crime against national dignity ever attempted by a motion picture!
