Join us as we dig into the many twists and turns of Vasan Bala's genre blending escapade Monica, O My Darling from 2022. Jason finds his apprehension in the wake of 13B utterly destroyed against the film's charm. Dustin finds an excuse to rant about Keigo Higashino and then puts in some extra credit by checking out a Japanese tv movie adaptation of the original source material. And so much more!
