Oeuvre Busters


Talking about Batman Forever (1995)

Season 3, Ep. 4

On this enigmatic episode of Oeuvre Busters, Liam and George tackle Batman Forever (1995), directed by Joel Schumacher and starring Val Kilmer, Nicole Kidman, Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones. Topics discussed: what it’s like to be kissed by a rose; Jim Carrey, insufferable fool; the masks make it better. Also, who would you rather date, Batman or Bruce Wayne? And why not both? Topics not covered: Marx’s theories of the circulation of capital as theorized in the Grundrisse, and how such theories prefigure the more “mature” Marx of Capital.
