Bonus Episode: The Tiger King

March 31st, 2020

Hello dear listeners! As Oklahoma natives, we thought it would be a must to talk about the recent Netflix Original docuseries The Tiger King about Oklahoma public figure, political figure, big cat figure, and all around character Joe Exotic. We are based only a couple of hours from Wynnewood, Oklahoma where the zoo Joe owned is located. We dive into the figures presented, how it works as a documentary, and how it feels to watch as Oklahomans. So, kick back and enjoy our discussion of The Tiger King

Ep. 360: A Taxi Driver (2017)

March 26th, 2020

Its the final reprise as Song of Praise comes to an end on episode 360. We're jumping ahead to 2017, to see a more mature and nuanced Song Kang-ho leading in A Taxi Driver. Inspired by true events, Song stars as Mr. Kim, a Seoul taxi driver who is looking for a lucrative fare. It comes in the form of a German journalist who hopes to sneak in to Gwangju and cover the protests in the area. Their two ideologies clash as Mr. Kim has to face his government and country from a new perspective. This week, we're talking historical pictures, Oscar bait, the politics of Gwangju, and much, much more as we wrap up our look at one of Korea's best, Song Kang-ho in A Taxi Driver. 

Ep. 359: The Host (2006)

March 19th, 2020

Song of Praise continues this week with a look at Bong Joon-ho's monster hit, The Host from 2006. The story of a father chasing a sea mutant in order to get his daughter back hits many of the marks of a Bong Joon-ho film, including economic displacement, class struggle, and human interaction. It also tacks on economic factors focusing on the what if based on real life events following the dumping of chemicals by American forces. We're tapping into all of those big Es on the eye chart, before diving into a discussion of how the film functions as a monster movie, while also discussing its subversions of the genre. Tune in as we go through another verse of this very fun marathon focusing on Song Kang-ho.

Song of Praise continues into the next chorus on episode 358 as we take a look at Song Kang-ho in the first chapter of Park Chan-wook's Vengeance Trilogy. That's right, this week we're discussing the 2002 revenge thriller that led us to OldboySympathy for Mr. Vengeance is the first in a spiritual trilogy of revenge tales that engage with the cycles of violence that we find ourselves in and fascinated by. Ryu needs money, so he kidnaps Mr. Park's daughter—a move that will lead both men down a path to revenge. This week, we're talking violence, class warfare, and much more as we dissect Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance.
