The Immortals have reached the end of The Apu Trilogy with the film The World of Apu. They look back the classic Satyajit Ray films and how the films really work best as a whole. They also dive into the The Carpenters’ and the miniseries Widows. They’ll listen to Bob Dylan’s album next week. Also enjoy the surprise Keanu Reeves cameo! You can’t guess where it’ll be!
Sarah is off traveling for work so it’s up to Austin, J.C. and Pedro to return to the Apu Trilogy with Aparajito. How does it hold up to the high standards of the first entry? They also prepare for this 4/20 weekend episode by getting into the reggae music of Toots and the Maytals and watch the silly BBC miniseries, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
The Apu Trilogy is one of the most beloved films in cinema history and The Immortals get the chance to start it with the poverty coming-of-age film, Pather Panchali. Then they get their taste of European history with an album by John Cale. They dive into what it means to be a drug song with Sister Morphine by Marianne Faithfull–not The Rolling Stones. Then Austin is too enthusiastic about a spy drama called The Sandbaggers. MOSTE POPULAR ENTRIES EVER!!!!
