After a year in which "entertainment" took on a whole new meaning, what were the movies that challenged our assumptions and made us think about things in new ways?

Josh and guest co-host Jeremy Sabol talk to philosophers and listeners as they present The 8th Annual Dionysus Awards for the most thought-provoking films of the past year, including:

  • Best Film Painting a World without Men
  • Best Picture That Packs All of American History into One Room
  • Trippiest Investigation of Identity (That Probably Should Have Ended Sooner)
