Episode 170 - TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE


Marionette might makes right in the raunchy puppet satire Team America: World Police, which takes aim at big-budget action clichés, Hollywood pomposity, and post-9/11 geopolitics. It's an indiscriminately edgy film that packs all the subtlety of a sledgehammer, yet also stands as a showcase of painstaking production design and visual effects. For this movie, commitment is clearly not a problem.

Andrew McNally has the I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E. to guide us through some complex feelings about America, South Park, and cinematic provocations in this special 4th of July blowout. Fuck Yeah!
