episode 91: 91: The Art of Self Defense


This week, we're going toe-to-toe with writer-director Riley Stearns' new dark comedy The Art of Self Defense, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Alessandro Nivola. We talk about how the film brings a critical lens to the socially constructed "rules" of manhood, and to the ways in which men are pressured to perform masculinity among other men in the establishment of a kind of hierarchy. We also discuss how the film works as a kind of response to Fight Club. SEGMENT TIMESTAMPS 2:10 The Art of Self Defense 33:45 What's Your FREQ-Out?
