Ep 33. WORLD TOUR: Last Layovers

As the World Tour comes to an end, Alex and Jonathan make a few final stops on the way home to talk about the further reaches of world cinema. We stop in Sweden with Hour of the Wolf (1968), in Taiwan with A Touch of Zen (1971), and in Brazil with City of God (2002). We talk about what goes into a good viewing experience, what makes an “open world” movie, and why it’s important to watch foreign films.
