The film Denial and the documentary Tower is the pair of films that Wade and Kevin discuss that use past events to comment on the present day. The first segment of this week’s show covers Mick Jackson’s Denial, about the court fight between a Hitler apologist (Timothy Spall), who denies the Holocaust ever happened, and a professor (Rachel Weisz) who calls him out on it. In the second segment, the guys turn their attention to Keith Maitland’s unusual 96 minute animated documentary Tower, about the 1966 mass shooting at the University of Texas in Austin.
