This week, the podcast gets all intellectual when Battleship Pretension's own Tyler Smith is our guest to discuss the 1989 "horror-comedy" Parents directed by Bob Balaban. The fellas delve into topics such as fucked up kids, the drawbacks to taking lithium before acting, aping David Lynch, and whether or not cannibalism is boring. Hope you enjoy; it's a good'n!

This was my first spin of your podcast and I really enjoyed your discussion of "Parents". I think this is a little gem for many reasons: the art direction is great, and the juxtaposition of the jaunty muzak soundtrack with the disturbing goings on is really effective. And the cast is so good! I loved Mary Beth Hurt's distracted housewife to bits - she always looks like she is remembering last night's blood orgy while keeping a straight face for her son. And Quaid is genuinely disturbing. I think "Parents" is a great examination of what living in this situation might do to the mind of a sensitive kid.
