New Podcast from Kevin McLenithan on Christ and Pop Culture: Seeing and Believing 205 | Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die and Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove

Whether you prefer your doomsdays to involve zombies or thermonuclear weapons, Seeing & Believing has you covered this week. First up is The Dead Don’t Die, directed by Jim Jarmusch, who returns to movies about the undead after his vampire riff Only Lovers Left Alive to tell a story about a zombie apocalypse in a sleepy rural town. Bill Murray and Adam Driver star as two police officers who have a pretty good idea of how everything is going to end. Wade and Kevin also continue their “Summer of Stan” series with Stanley Kubrick’s famed Cold War satire, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Over half a century after it first came out, the guys explore how well Kubrick’s vision of bomb-riding cowboys and fluid-obsessed military maniacs holds up. And that’s not all, anticipation of the Toy Story 4 review next week, Wade sits down with Pixar production coordinator Dana Frankoff to talk about the studio’s creative process!
