Film Pigeons Episode 52: Frailty, The Fountain, Top 4 Religious Films

On the fifty second episode of the Film Pigeons podcast Andrew and Jason lament Andrew's "user error" which led to the early demise of the previous two episodes (featuring The Fall, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Fires on the Plain and Forrest Gump) yet are able to overcome their grief enough to review two more 'F' films. The first is Bill Paxton's directorial debut Frailty, a film about a God driven serial killer. The second is Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain a visually appealing bit of cinematic psycho-babble dealing with losing love and embryonic, future astronauts. Then, in honor of Frailty's religious overtones, we reveal our Top 4 Religions Films. Andrew also continues his Best Picture winner trek and talks about the 1934, 1935 (briefly as these were featured on the lost episodes) and 1936 Best Picture winners, Cavalcade, It Happened One Night and Mutiny on the Bounty
