Tank Girl (1995) Analysis — GC #321

June 13th, 2019

Episode 321 of the GenreCast sees the return of Alexandra Bohannon! She stumbled through the multiverse to come talk Tank Girl (1995) with us. Set in a dystopian future, Tank Girl features evil men who control resources, rebel groups, a chaotic protagonist and mutant kangaroos. Arthur, Dalton, Alex and Dustin work through the idea of feminism portrayed in the film, as well as the idea of competing ideologies or unfairly measuring how a film advances a certain thought process. We also talk about studio intervention, the representation of rebels pre and post 9/11, and much more. After the dust settles, we decide if Tank Girl belongs on the shelf or in the trash. Let us know what you think of Tank Girl here on Podbean, or by connecting with us on Twitter (@Good_Trash) and Facebook (@GoodTrashMedia).

Episode 320 of the GenreCast moves the team out of A Man Called Keanu into a normal routine with the aptly titled Keanu. From the team behind the sketch series, Key & Peele comes a feature length comedy starring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. This absurd take on revenge films and wrong man narratives is chock full of the social commentary that made Key & Peele so smart and clever. The boys are joined this week by comedian, poet and activist Cameron Brewer to break open the film's commentary on performative masculinity and code switching. Tune in now!
