I Just Don't See The Big Deal
Episode 45

A Raw Holocaust Part 2: Clowns, Gay Filmmakers, and the Grand Puba of Disturbing Cinema

Alexander von Sternberg published on

In the follow-up to their discussion on Raw, the boys finally take the dive into a discussion on, as Burgess calls it, the Grand Puba of the disturbing film canon, Cannibal Holocaust, which, along with Burgess' praise of the semi-recent It remake, neatly book-ends a discussion on the greatest gay love story ever told on film, Call Me By Your Name (and probably one of von Sternberg's favorite films of 2017). Come for the discussion, stay for Burgess' consistent use of eating puns. The discussion on the mockumentary aesthetic will also provide listeners with a fine preview of what is to come in the coming episodes of I Just Don't See the Big Deal.
