NOTE: THIS EPISODE IS APRIL FOOLS FOR THE FIRST 40 MINS.] The
Academy Awards 2022, part 3 of 3: A Political Car Crash. Two male
writers write a movie about a promiscuous young woman adrift in
life, with heavy drug use presented in a positive light. Hey, what
could go wrong? Apparently nothing, you get nominated for an Oscar
for it. The Norwegian Oscar contender ‘The Worst Person in the
World’ is the most bizarre cinematic experience of the last few
years. It is a slacker-inspired dramedy which mishmashes 'shrooms
and witchcraft into capturing a soulmate’s soul. Additionally, the
film supports the abolition of traditional morality and uses CGI to
remove the real truth about its filming locations. Karri and Henrik
investigate what in the world is going on here.
