Celebrating the Art That Shall Endure Throughout Time

Episode #29 — Magnolia / Is This It? / Vatrushka / Heartbeats / There Will Be Wolves / The Paradise

Magnolia podcast review

The Immortals return and that includes Adam from his week of interdimensional kidnapping! Once they settle down from his adventure, they get into the insightful (or pretentious?) Paul Thomas Anderson film, Magnolia. (They do note when they start talking about spoilers.) They learn whether The Strokes hold up 10 years later, whether Vatrushka is a pastry or a roll, whether Pedro can focus on The Knife’s version of Heartbeats, whether a children’s book can be more upsetting than one about The Crusades and then it’s time for THE PARADISE. Get excited!

  1. For a little perspective, have you guys listened to Marc Maron talk to Paul Thomas Anderson? They talk about Magnolia around the 58 minute mark.
