Episode 112: Velvet Goldmine

This week, Morgan and Gavia go deep on one of their favorite films of all time: Todd Haynes' glam rock cult classic Velvet Goldmine. They reflect on their personal history with the film, contextualize its many historical and artistic references, discuss the role that fandom plays in the film, and sing the praises of all four central performances, including Christian Bale and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
