Episode 52: Counter Investigation

Counter Investigation

When a man convicted of killing his daughter tirelessly pleads his innocence, an overworked police captain reconsiders the case.

IMDb

Whether you see the plot twists coming or not, this is a very enjoyable read. Yup, a read because if you're listening to this show, chances are you don't speak French. This is a movie about how a child-rapist-murderer-guy commits this evil crime in order to score one of the nicest looking studio apartments I have ever seen. If you go to prison in France, apparently you get your own room with television, books, in-room meals... The works! I bet if you were a wanted French criminal, you could probably work out a deal where you turn yourself in and score an internet connection so that you could listen to Random Reviews and other Ramblings and jerk off (at the same time) every day for the duration of your prison sentence. Anyway, beyond being stunned by the luxurious punishment France enforces, this is actually a pretty decent movie. There are two good twists that I enjoyed and Gordon claims to also have enjoyed even though he saw them coming from his moon yacht, which is powered by Reddit karma. After the news, I bring in two short reviews of Jupiter Ascending and The Brothers Bloom. Next week, we're watching Plot for Peace.
