In this episode of Misery Movies, we have a contentious debate about the darkly comic British film Black Pond. As a bonus for fans who enjoy off-topic rambling, there’s also a lengthy digression about Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita.
As always, the first half of the podcast is spoiler-free and includes our review of the film, while the second dives deep into the miserable details of the movie and thus contains plentiful spoilers.
If you have a fetish for coughs and intrusive background noise, our original, unedited conversation can be found on our YouTube channel.
The theme that plays at the beginning of the podcast is an excerpt from “Dance_or_Die” by Stefan Kartenberg, which Stefan has graciously made available for public use through a Creative Commons Attribution (3.0) license.
