Welcome to episode 008 of Psychosocial Cinema; since our last episode a lot has changed with the world. Many of us have been hit with unexpected trials ranging from things that are controllable, along with things that appear to be totally out of our control. To that end, the subject matter of this episode is quite timely and I am rather pleased that I can get the podcast up and running again after a short break with this particular film.
I am joined by good friend, and fellow computer game advocate, Eric Goebel, as we tackle the film, The Road.
This episode tackles some topics including depression, suicide, and morality, as the film in question deftly handles these subjects in a somewhat unrelenting, emotional manner. The reason I use the word unrelenting is due to the opposition that our protagonists face throughout the film. Whether it is mother nature or treacherous humans, Man and Boy have a lot of soul searching to do and a lot to uncover as they travel towards their uncertain safety. Please join Eric and I as we venture down The Road; pun most certainly intended.
