Pod Casty For Me

Nov 3, 2023

Take this down, listeners - we're talking the second half of Clint Eastwood's 2006 WWII diptych, LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA, and we're joined by writer and filmmaker Comrade Yui! We're talking Ken Watanabe, connections to FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS, both films' perspectives on propaganda, and Jake and Yui pressure Ian to acknowledge Clint's GOAThood. Check it out!

Topics include: THE BATTLE OF OKINAWA, much of the film's cast appearing in Takeshi Kitano's KUBI, Kiyoshi Kurosawa's take on the film, the bushido code, killing ourselves with grenades, elves, the occult, and more!
