This week, we were repeatedly inspired by Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac, but not in the ways listeners might hope. First, the film's two-episode serial structure gets us talking about how film and TV are drifting closer together in form, content, and presentation. Then we play a special Nymphomaniac-inspired game of Parental Guidance Suggested, using the user-submitted parental warnings on the IMDB—in this case, for films so violent or sexually graphic that parents should already know to steer clear. We also interview Pictures At A Revolution author Mark Harris about his stellar, ambitious new film book Five Came Back, and close with our speed-round recommendation segment, 30 Seconds To Sell.
