Gobbledygeek: Episode 175 – What’s Blue and White and Red All Over?
First, The Gentlemen’s Guide to Midnite Cinema discussed Three Colors: Blue. Then, The Debatable Podcast talked about Three Colors: White. Now, as the last stop on this epic pod crawl, Paul and AJ discuss the final film of Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Three Colors trilogy–and his final film, period–Red. The boys dig deep on this one, discussing the nature of relationships, the hidden connections in our lives, and time itself in the context of one of the most beautiful movies ever made. What does it all mean? Maybe it doesn’t mean anything, and that’s okay. Plus, Paul loves Cosmos and AJ has complicated feelings on the True Detective finale.
