Episode 056 - Phenomena


What is the titular “phenomena” to which our favorite Italian director Dario Argento is referring in this week’s film? Your guess is as good as ours, but one thing is for sure: Ryan and Tim get right to the point in discussing the true power of “Phenomena:” chimpanzee acting. Could the extraordinary work of a primate and her relationship with both Donald Pleasence and Jennifer Connelly save the day? Listen in and find out why Ryan and Tim both rated it a “stream,” despite (for Ryan) and in spite of (for Tim) the film’s simian antics.
