Cut the Chit Chat

In this week's aviary anomaly of an episode, Jacob and Nathan discuss Alan Parker's 1984 feathery film Birdy! After gliding back to the early '80s to investigate what makes this Nicolas Cage's first serious stab at method acting, they squawk about: Birdy's place in the Vietnam movie canon; Modine and Cage's dissimilarly unhinged performances; birds as metaphors for liberation; and overgrown mammory glands.

Come fly with us this week in this white swan of an episode that claws deep into a weird, fascinating, and cuckoo film—either you'll enjoy it, or we'll eat crow!
