We crack open a few cold ones (figuratively) with Paul Keelan (Cinematic Underdogs) to unpack and disagree about the Oscar-nominated Another Round. How does the film experiment with existentialism, and how does it explore our complicated relationship with alcohol? Is it worthy of being recognized as among the best films of the year, or is it just Old School dressed up with Kierkegaard quotes? We also react to its portrayal of gendered divisions of labor and explore the film’s attitude towards its characters. We hope you enjoy this unusually critical episode. Let us know what you think about the film!

What is youth? A dream. What is love? The content of the dream.

Søren Kierkegaard
