Lesson 182: First Blood (1982) – The War Never Ends
The Filmlosophers take a nose dive headfirst into the world of veterans and vagrancy with a deeper look at Sylvester Stallone’s 1982 action film, First Blood. The guys dissect the work of author David Morrell and his novel adapted into the cinematic work that started a 37 year franchise. The idea of Rambo holds thoughts of guns and explosions (and definitely body counts), but what happens if you take a closer look at the film that started it all? The Dynamic Duo do just that, and dig deep into not only the impact First Blood had in the cinematic world, but even it’s implications about the treatment of Vets in the U.S., even to this day! Tune in to find out how deep we dive in this week’s episode of The Filmlosophers!
