New Podcast from Kevin McLenithan on Christ and Pop Culture: Seeing and Believing 208 | Ari Aster’s Midsommar and Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon



Seeing & Believing reaches the end of its Summer of Stan series this week, as the guys dig into Barry Lyndon, Kubrick’s often underappreciated follow-up to A Clockwork Orange. Kubrick’s pet theme of humanity’s capacity for inhumanity is cloaked this time in the gentility of British high society as he follows the travails of a young man trying to make his fortune among the powdered wigs and “gentlemanly” warfare of the late 1700s. Wade and Kevin also take a look at a different vision of savagery with their review of Ari Aster’s bonkers horror thriller Midsommar, a sunny tale of terror and cults in the picturesque Swedish countryside.
