Episode #18 -- L'Atalante

(or: "Everything is caviar and silk when you're on a barge!")


If, before watching this movie, you had asked either of us about what it would be like to live on a barge, our responses would probably involve getting bitten by rats, constantly having to shoo seagulls away, and entertaining ourselves with jaunty accordion music. This movie gets one of those three correct, but we'll leave it up to you to listen and find out which of those three it is. What mystery!

In other news, this episode makes the third, that's right, THIRD time Andrew has selected Lilya 4-Ever out of the movie guide. We assure you, this isn't a bit that we're playing up for comedic purposes, this is all happening legitimately. Unless, of course, our copy of the guide is haunted. Oh god, you guys, what if our copy of the guide is haunted?! ANYWAY, given that he's selected it three times over the course of the last eighteen episodes, it seems reasonable to assume that it's only a matter of time before Andrew selects it again, and so going forward we will be donating money to charities that are working to stop human trafficking each time Lilya 4-Ever crosses our paths in this pcast (pcast stands for "podcast", in case you couldn't figure that out on your own).

NEXT TIME: A perfectly adequate blaxploitation movie!
