54 - Tank Girl

YEEEAAAH, TANK GIRL!!!! Lost among the myriad of failed adaptations in the 1990s lies a fantastic Looney-Toonish feminist manifesto that clearly scared too many people in Hollywood. Listen to Alex and Julio as they discuss Lori Petty's powerhouse performance as a female Bugs Bunny superhero, Malcolm McDowell's prescient take on a future American president and Naomi Watts' heartbreaking film debut in The States. All this and Ice-T as a mutant kangaroo too!

Not enough for you? We'll also announce our Summer 2018 Project!

- The documentary MARWENCOL has been out for a while. You can watch it on iTunes. Yay technology.

- Between the time when we recorded this episode and the time we posted, our friends from BEARS ON FILM changed the name of their podcast to WE WATCHED A THING. The recommendation still stands.

Next episode: Alex finally faces his fear of Wes Anderson as we tackle THE FANTASTIC MR. FOX! Until then, please rate/review/subscribe on Apple Podcasts and email us at wearethecontrarians@gmail.com to tell us how excited you are about this thing we are doing in the Summer. And to talk about Tank Girl too, if you must.

Oh, and here's the picture Julio showed Alex at the beginning of Real Talk...
