« Ep191: Arts for the Society | Main | Ep189: Fathomable »


This week, The Kicking the Seat Podcast welcomes back's Patrick "The Über Critic" McDonald for a look at Maren Ade's dramatic dissertation on discomfort, Toni Erdmann! The German comedy opens today at Chicago's Music Box Theatre, and was recently named a contender for Best Foreign Language Film by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Listen as the guys break down themes, and have a breakdown trying to remember plot specifics!

Also, Ian plugs two not-to-be-missed events coming up this weekend:

  • An appearance by The Dark Room Men (with vocals from The Über Critic himself!) at Redline Tap's "Rock 'N Roll Circus" on Sunday!
  • A special screening of the documentary Colin Hay: Waiting for My Real Life at City Winery--featuring a live post-show Q&A with former Men at Work front-man, Colin Hay!

Like Toni Erdmann, Episode 190 is indescribably weird and vaguely European, but it's sure to warm your heart!
