Nathan Rabin's Happy Cast #32: Ernest Builds a House
Now that the joy of the new year has passed, and we’ve all forgotten our resolutions, it’s time for a Happy Cast that is decidedly less happy! This week, Nathan and Clint go for a double-dose of arthouse didacticism with indie provocateur Lars Von Trier. First, we break down the upsetting misanthropy of his latest, The House That Jack Built; then we take a trip back to 2006 to watch his computer-shot, computer-cut workplace comedy The Boss of It All.
Then, for a nice change of pace we talk about Kevin Spacey’s deeply misguided in-character diss track “Let Me Be Frank” - including a dramatic reading from Clint by way of one of Spacey’s many over-hyped impressions. Let’s dig down into hell together and come out the other side, more warped than ever!
