Reeled In: "Black Panther" | Episode 85.5
Posted February 21, 2018
Because there aren't enough opinions out there about Ryan Coogler's "Black Panther," broken white boys Chance and Noah unpack the political read and narrative construction of this Marvel blockbuster. Is Wakanda a utopia or an acknowledgement of violence's place in society? Is globalism a responsibility or a danger for a tech- and resource-rich country? Unclear! But what is clear is that both guys have a real affection for Michael B. Jordan. Noah can't get over the ancestral plane, and Chance's only point of CGI reference is the Star Wars prequels.
