1.1 “A Freudian Nightmare Bollywood Remake of Psycho” – Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Near-Doctor Brigit walks us through her childhood favorite, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Easily the most divisive film of the series, Brigit walks us through its pile of contradictions and what it meant to her as a child. At once it is:

*A live-action cartoon
*A fantasy metaphor for relationships with abusive parents
*A primer on intersectional social justice for five-year-olds
*Nearly misogynist

Outro music: John Williams Indiana Jones Orchestral Medley
