Episode 30: The Testament of Dr. Mabuse

, with special guest:

The Testament of Dr. MabuseIn this week’s episode, we thoroughly enjoy a movie banned personally by Joseph Goebbels: The Testament of Dr. Mabuse!

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because the second part of the episode will probably make no sense whatsoever if you don’t. This film is easily available via a great 2-disc set released by Criterion, and is also currently available streaming on Hulu Plus.

Please join us on August 21st for second movie in our Fritz Lang triple feature: Ministry of Fear!
