Glass Onion, Triangle of Sadness, and good for M3GAN

Avoid luxury cruises/islands, plus people love the dancing, yassified Chucky doll

We discuss Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and Triangle of Sadness, two films that beat us over the head with cynicism about money and power.

02:01 Glass Onion, streaming on Netflix, is neither outstanding nor terrible, but basically akin to a fine or even fun Scooby-Doo mystery.

20:06 Triangle of Sadness, available VOD, is blunt, vulgar, and chaotic — and very good.

37:33 Plus, culture notes about M3GAN the doll and M3GAN the film’s viral fame.
