Kicking off the fourth season of your favorite podcast about mindfuck movies, we look deep into ADVANTAGEOUS, a 2015 low-budget sci-fi darling of Sundance. Directed and co-written by Jennifer Phang, starring and co-written by Jacqueline Kim, with a welcome understated performance by Ken Jeong, the movie explores eternal themes amid a futuristic backdrop that looks all too familiar: How will competition for the best jobs work in a more crowded world? What happens when technology is good enough to make many careers obsolete? When it comes to self-improvement, how far is too far? And will we become almost totally inured to terrorism? This week, Bill and Renan are joined by Nisha Chittal, aka Renan's better half, who brings a feminist perspective to this subtly socio-political speculative fiction.  Film links: Watch Advantageous on Netflix Advantageous on IMDb Advantageous on Wikipedia Review at The Dissolve Review at WIRED Review at NY Times Review at Gizmodo Watch original short film on
