The Cinematologists Podcast Episode 38: Robocop (Verhoeven, 1987)

robocopFor the last two years my colleague at Falmouth University’s School of Film & Television Dr Neil Fox and Brighton University Principal Lecturer Dr Dario Llinares have been hosting a fortnightly podcast, with all of the episodes collated here

Regularly in the iTunes Top 20 for Cinema, I’ve chipped in a few times in the on stage discussion. For the first screening of 2017, Neil chose Robocop. We scope about the prescience of the film, what it is to be human and a corrupting corporate takeover of the machinations of state which appears to have reached its endpoint with the election of one Donald J. Trump. Robocop (Verhoeven, 1987). The screening was a lot of fun. Click the link below to listen:
