Badlands - 8/23/14

This week, Brent chooses Terrence Malick's 1973 road drama Badlands, starring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek as young lovers who embark on a spree-killing trip through the rural Southwest.  The movie, loosely based on the real-life murders of Charles Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate, was adopted into the National Film Registry in 1993.  Join us at the bar as we talk James Dean, counterculture, the influence of the film on Quentin Tarantino, and more on this week's scholarly episode of film talk!
