The Gribshnobler and LadyMsGee discuss the new Nicolas Winding Refn film The Neon Demon. SPOILER ALERT!!! Many, many spoilers for The Neon Demon as well as a couple for the director's earlier film Valhalla Rising. Also included: songs by M is We and synthwave band Dead Astronauts.
Note: although explicit language is rarely used, this episode does feature discussions of mature themes and events from the film.
M is We is not actually performing in Myrtle Beach this Friday, but rather leader Michael Woods is performing as a member of The Affectionates, also performing are Drewbear & Jordan and the Sphinx. Likewise the event is not at Hurrican Maggies, but at Ron Jon's. Facebook event page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1241414065881576/
The Neon Demon is available to stream through Amazon (at no extra charge for prime members)
Valhalla Rising is available on Netflix Instant
