The pairings keep getting stranger and stranger every week, and this week's show is no exception! Special guest Ryan Oliver joins Sam and Jon to tackle two very different classics, starting with Akira Kurosawa's massively influential 1950 arthouse classic Rashomon. We discuss everything from our differing experiences with the film, how multiple viewings have yielded different interpretations, and why the film has remained so meaningful even after 70 years. After that, we take a huge left turn toward Transylvania to examine the legacy and power of Jim Sharman's 1975 genre-defining cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which one of us doesn't like! It's another collection of varied experiences complete with a litany of recommendations to go along with both films!
