Happy Fourth of July weekend listeners! To celebrate the sacrifice of movie viewing independence, Arthur and I went Back to the Movies to review Hollywood’s celebration of gun toting violence in America. Is the film intentionally celebrating violence or is there more than meets the eye in The Purge: Election Year?
Murder, anarchy, and the corruption of the one percent are all on this horror/action film’s mind. Its heart in the right place, but three movies in, does it really bring enough to smart commentary to the table to have the conversation? We bring a bit of analysis to this ideologically troubled flick for your Independence Day listening pleasure.
