Different Deplorables: “The Hunt” and “Urban Cowboy”

John Travolta’s character in 1980’s “Urban Cowboy” is not a good person.  The sad thing about the movie, however, is that it doesn’t seem to recognize this.  In this year’s “The Hunt,” we have a whole lot of folks who aren’t good people and, fortunately, the movie does indeed recognize this.  It’s actually kind of the point.  Of course, that doesn’t make the movie good, it just means that it avoids this one pitfall… but it certainly manages to fall into other ones.

On this week’s podcast we tackle both films, looking at what works, what doesn’t, and the different sort of brutal experiences they offer.
