We discuss the Coen Brothers in general, the film’s homage-heavy story, the choice of actors, the actors’ choices, and the real history of the hula hoop. We consider the mish-mash of myth and fantasy, the stunning set design, how the stock market works, and basic physics.
We’re watching streaming and DVR versions. Start the commentary after the Paramount logo, on the countdown.
@ComTrackStars the hula hoop montage music is Aram Khachaturian's Sabre Dance from the ballet Gayane. The main theme is also Khachaturian!
