Of Human Bondage Ep. 003: One Chin Shared Among Four Million (Goldfinger)

(2 comments)

The third episode of Of Human Bondage, the podcast where Kit Power, Sam Maleski, myself, and occasional guests talk about the Eon Productions James Bond 007 films, is now publicly available. This week we're talking about 1964's alleged classic Goldfinger, and, spoilers, we all detest it on artistic, moral, and political grounds. We discuss the politics of luxury, classism, the heightened cinematic language of director Guy Hamilton, race and Oddjob, and that scene. 

Massive trigger warning for this one. From the beginning we clearly delineate the time stamps for the relevant segment of the episode, but we there is a long digression about the rape scene that occurs near the end of Goldfinger. It gets pretty raw, as we're talking about a scene endorsing the sexual assault of a queer woman. There's a part of the conversation where I discuss my experiences with sexual trauma, so if you want to avoid triggering autobiographical material, you may want to skip that part of the episode.

We're very proud of this podcast though, and the triggering segment is clearly marked for anyone who wants to skip it. After we recorded this one we all agreed we'd hit our stride with it. It's a strong couple hours of audio, and we hope you enjoy it.
