[!! NOTE: THIS EPISODE IS APRIL FOOLS FOR THE FIRST 40 MINS.] The Academy Awards 2022, part 3 of 3: A Political Car Crash. Two male writers write a movie about a promiscuous young woman adrift in life, with heavy drug use presented in a positive light. Hey, what could go wrong? Apparently nothing, you get nominated for an Oscar for it. The Norwegian Oscar contender ‘The Worst Person in the World’ is the most bizarre cinematic experience of the last few years. It is a slacker-inspired dramedy which mishmashes ‘shrooms and witchcraft into capturing a soulmate’s soul. Additionally, the film supports the abolition of traditional morality and uses CGI to remove the real truth about its filming locations. Karri and Henrik investigate what in the world is going on here.
Hosted by Karri Ojala and Henrik Telkki. Edited by Karri Ojala. The Flick Lab theme tune written and performed by Nick Grivell.
