With the buzz of the new Joker film, we thought it was a good idea to dig some dirt on the so-called anti-hero for this week’s podcast. Hostess Bianca is joined by Robin and Joel to unravel the enigmatic character in film. From the likes of Jules in Pulp Fiction, Renton in Trainspotting, to classic cases like Travis Bickle or D-FENS from Falling Down, we attempt to look at how the anti-hero might be defined, how they are portrayed, and some varied examples to boot.
