#27. Snowpiercer (2013) — A Shoot the WISB Subcast w/ James L. Sutter

31 Oct

Trains, bug patties, and revolutions, oh my!  James L. Sutter joins the crew to discuss Joon-Ho Bong’s critically-acclaimed Snowpiercer (2013).  We tackle the film’s symbology, its religious imagery, the allegories of capital and race in its narrative, and a whole lot more.  Plus:  there’s a big old debate at the end on how dramatic “serious” sf is sometimes treated differently than “fun” sf.

We hope you enjoy the episode!
