Talking about Superman (1978)
On this super (groan) episode of Oeuvre Busters, George welcomes special guest host Sean Mannion to discuss Richard Donner's Superman (1978), starring Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman, and Margot Kidder. Topics discussed: the origins of Kryptonite; Marlon Brando giving zero fucks; the death (and resurrection!) of Superman; shape-shifting aliens; Lex Luthor, Australian; the fall of Saigon. Also, Superman and heteronormativity. Topics not discussed? The rise of autofiction: neoliberal genre or subversive antidote to the bourgeois novel? You decide!
Besides being an excellent person, Sean Mannion is an incredibly talented filmmaker. His film, Meme, can be found on Amazon Prime. More about Sean can be found here:https://www.sean-mannion.com/
