Season 4, Ep. 14

On this episode of Oeuvre Busters, Liam and George plumb the depths to discuss Akira Kurosawa's The Lower Depths, starring, of course, the studly Toshiro Mifune. Topics discussed: Maxim Gorky, wookie lookalike; fuck Richard Crenna; 24-hour TangoMan; Stalin and how he murked a few folks; Maxim Gorky, time traveler. Also, be obnoxious, go ahead!
