"Where it's always Oscar season."

Two cinephiles. One mission. Every Best Picture nominee of the 21st century.

Dec 27, 2021

Some of the best movies in any given year don't earn Oscar nods. Case in point: director David Cronenberg's "A History of Violence."

In this episode, Mike and Brian dig into the movie's exploration of identity and corruption, and wrestle with what it might be saying about viewers' own appetite for bloodshed. They talk Viggo Mortensen's post-"The Lord of the Rings" performance, trivia and if the film belongs in the year's top five.
