It’s the beginning of our DEATH WISH series, and this marks a new twist on Blood and Black Rum Podcast – Martin leads this episode, and the subsequent episodes in the series!
We tackle Death Wish, a film starring Charles Bronson as a vigilante against crime in NYC after his wife is murdered and his daughter raped by thugs (including one of our favorites, Jeff Goldblum). We talk about the nature of the film’s premise – of fighting back with gunplay – and also discuss the political and societal implications of the film, noting how little society has changed forty-three years after the film’s release.
