This episode see’s us take a trip back in time to the Japan of old. Here we bow our heads to the late, great Akira Kurosawa and his highly significant and inspirational SEVEN SAMURAI. From the conflicted personalities that inhabit the film, to the movies incredibly poignant metaphors and symbolism. There is so much to dissect and enjoy here that really is no wonder that this film is considered a masterpiece by so many.
This week’s trashbag masterpiece is a stone classic, Shakesperian heavyweight Derek Jacobi takes to the streets to teach us about Charles Dickens England. In a truly unfathomable effort that clearly didn’t have the budget for an editing suite, you learn pretty much nothing but laugh a whole lot along the way.
