Episode 108: Father's Chair

Father's Chair

Three foreign films in a row and I'm happy to report that Gordon and Geoff haven't gotten out the rope yet. Season 4 of Random Reviews has had some great films from far-away lands brought to us by Reelgood. Or could it be that our American spirit has finally been broken? Father's Chair is a great adventure movie about how an unlikely man, Netflix's Pablo Escobar, comes into possession of an evil chair; The Father's Chair. The only way to prevent Brazil from spending any more money on worthless sports infrastructure is to carry the chair across the country and cast it into a fire off of Mt. Christ the Redeemer in Rio. Pablo meets a lot of interesting characters on his journey through Middle Ear- uh, I mean, Brazil. After successfully destroying the chair, his wife wins his house in the divorce proceedings. It's a truly great adventure movie, and if it were preceded by some sort of pointless, easily-prevented drama, the whole plot would fall apart. So, you know, after reading this description, go watch Father's Chair and skip the first 20 minutes. After the news, we're reviewing I, Tonya, Tickle Fight, Great America, and The Shape of Water. Next week, we're watching Prelude to War, a 1942 American propaganda piece.
