The Pestle


Ep 239: “Run Lola Run”

July 04, 2023

We dash through “Run Lola Run” and discuss:

  • Visual signature;
  • Story & Writing, Chaos Theory, time, soccer, runtime;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

It is a test (a positive test, I do not assert that it is always valid negatively), that genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood. – T.S. Eliot
