Episode 153 – The Lighthouse

It’s time to dive into The Lighthouse, meaning we’re talking about Freud, Jung, and myth, and seeing how many times we can say “phallus” in 1.5 hours!

The Lighthouse, or: two bros, chillin’ in a lighthouse, trying to kill each other ’cause they’re not gay. We’re kidding, mostly. Let’s talk about Freud, Jung, and myth, and see how many times we can say “phallus” in 1.5 hours!

Mistakes: When Missy says she wants to see an “indulgent, weird, complex, creepy horror movie,” but that Robert Eggers isn’t the person to direct it, she forgot to include “queer” in her description. Eggers has, in fact, directed at least two indulgent, weird, complex, creepy horror movies.
