27 Apr

Baby taxis, french insults, and white messiahs, oh my! This month, in the most french episode we’ve ever had, Alex, Julia, David, and special guest, DongWon Song, review the problem-plagued film, Babylon AD. We’re pretty sure that this episode of Torture Cinema contains more action than Michelle Yeoh gets in the entire movie. Seriously. Michelle fucking Yeoh.

We hope you enjoy the episode!
