Ep434: Who Benefits?

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and Pat “The Über Critic” McDonald of and the Chicago Film Tour get downright conspiratorial with an in-depth look at Winter Kills!

William Richert's 1979 political satire presents a Kennedy-assassination allegory unlike any other. A paranoid mash-up of Citizen Kane and Network, the movie finds Jeff Bridges traveling the globe to find out who gave the order to kill his older brother, a former President of the United States.

The tone is all over the place, ranging from cracked-mirror parody to bona fide thriller, and Ian and Pat do their best to figure out why Winter Kills is not more widely regarded in the conspiracy-movie pantheon.

Politically, Episode 434 is back and to the left!
