War Machine vs. War Horse: The Handmaiden (Bound vs. Chloe)


The episode the Internet demanded: Hot lesbian action! Other than cynically abusing search engines with this description, we are inspired by a very good film from 2016, which is new to Amazon streaming, THE HANDMAIDEN from director Park Chan-Wook. Avoiding being simply simple pleasures for simple podcasters, this great film provides a fun and thrilling caper, much like The Wachowskis debut film from 1996 BOUND and not so much like Atom Egoyan's CHLOE. Yes, this is the episode where returning guest and fellow Julianne Moore fan club member Dwight Hurst of The Broken Brain podcast may actually vote against one of her films.

ALSO our Australian correspondent Andrew of AB Film Review and The Last New Wave talks of his excitement for being tickled and latest entry in the soon-to-be classic film trilogy FIFTY SHADES DARKER.
