Lee (who is half in the bag as this starts) and Daniel are back to look at a 1990s favourite of theirs, that being Kathryn Bigelow's "Strange Days" (1995). The hosts talk a lot about how well the sci-fi and noir elements are melded here, and the various plot threads, and if this film holds up over-all, or if it's firmly dated at this point. Other topics include Juliette Lewis being sexy; how the film does or does not confront police corruption and racism head-on; the way rape is presented in the context of the film; and other actors who were considered for the lead role. The hosts also mention what they've watched recently and respond to listener comments.
