BERGMAN! BERGMAN! BERGMAN! That’s right, we’re the only podcast talking about Persona and The Jerry Springer Show on the same episode. They both torment the soul and make us question our identity. We also listened to Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk and Ian Dury’s Sweet Gene Vincent. Enjoy!
Sarah is gone this week so it’s up to Austin, J.C. and Pedro to rise up and smash the bourgeoisie in Sergei Eisenstein’s Strike! They also go deep into the current state of The Tonight Show and how it’s changed in 60 years. Also they record maybe the dumbest segment in the history of The Immortals with the song review of Java Jive by the Ink Spots. Enjoy!
Happy Halloween! Fear the Pale Man! The Immortals watch the beloved Guillermo del Toro new classic, Pan’s Labyrinth. They also listen to the sweet sound of Rufus Wainwright, the political messages of Damian Marley and discuss the murder-porn elements of The Fall. Get excited!
Before Hannibal Lecter bragged about fava beans, he was in prison and stayed in prison in the film Manhunter. The Immortals look into the Michael Mann adaptation of Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon and see how it stacks up to so many more iconic depictions.

They’re in the money! The Immortals are here to review the charming musical Gold Diggers of 1933. They also chill out with Astrud Gilberto’s album Beach Samba, they watch Johnny Cash walk the line and they join their best friends Mutual of Omaha to watch Wild Kingdom. Get excited!

They also try to solve the weirdness of Kate Bush’s album, The Dreaming. Pedro declares his love of ABBA with Voulez-Vous. Austin watched Frontline–not that one. Get excited!

And now for something completely different! The Immortals review their first Bogie film with High Sierra, Pedro makes his opinions on The Beatles very clear (again) with Abbey Road, everyone has One Fine Day and then they make way for the epic Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Get excited!
IT’S KONG. The Immortal discuss the ethics behind the 1933 adventure film King Kong and the legacy it has left behind.
