But does this film deserve the classic status it has now garnered or should it be sent to the bottom of the bottomless pit? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster clap our coconuts together and sally forth to investigate.

In 1965, Indonesia was the stage for a violent coup that would give power to gangsters and paramilitary groups with the goal to find and slaughter communists and their sympathizers. In 2003, director Joshua Oppenheimer found several of these individuals and offered them a chance to reinact their brutality on film in any way they want. The result would be The Act of Killing, a documentary that blurs the line between fact and fiction. But does the film earn the acclaim? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster investigate.

In 1915, film director D.W. Griffith made a 3 hour epic tale of the Civil War and it's aftermath that would become the first massive blockbuster in US History. It would also become the most controversial film ever made not only because of its depictions of African Americans but also from its idolization of the Ku Klux Klan. 100 years after the release of this film, MovieDude Eric, Kent & Jonolobster are heading down to Dixie to make what we can of this difficult film.

WARNING: This episode discusses the very touchy subject of racism, hate groups and political movements heavily involved in the matter.
