BHoP#071 Slay the Minotaur

Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk finish the series on Hollywood. They open by comparing the suspicious circumstances surrounding the deaths of various celebrities including Stanley Kubrick, whose film The Shining played off and defined the uniquely American genre: Horror. They talk about Kubrick's origins as a photographer and his works as a filmmaker, and how his film Eyes Wide Shut images the depravity of power in Hollywood.

A Brief History of Power

Every week Dr. Adam Koontz and Rev. Jonathan Fisk check their privilege against the backdrop of the wide and varied annals of history. You don‘t have to believe the Babel about the sons of Noah being a rosetta for understanding the postmodern global politic to agree that an intellectual dark web exists because history always rhymes, no matter what you try to do about it. You might not save the world by listening, citizen, but that doesn‘t mean you won‘t save someone. Because knowing is only the first half of the battle.
