Violence in the Roost

Untitled-1-02

How is violence used in film, and how do audiences respond to it? In this podcast, Sarah and Alex discuss the appeal of violence in media, using specific films and articles to map out some key aspects of this massive topic.

CONTENT WARNING: We talk about sexual violence (i.e. sexual assault and rape) starting at 37:00 and transition into a conversation about sexualized violence (i.e. films that add a sexual air to a violent scene) at 39:38.
