Plot Summary: A genetically inferior man assumes the identity of a superior one in order to pursue his lifelong dream of space travel.

Note: In addition to this being one of the last of the banked episodes, it's also the penultimate recording from 2011. Josh, Tysto and I take an in depth look at this unique and throught-provoking science fiction-noir film. We discuss and reconfigure the story structure and plot points, examine the themes and ideas within and reflect on the critical and audience reaction, as well as the film's success and relevance to today. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the film on your DVD.
