Guest Co-Hosts: Rob St. Mary, Spencer Parsons

Can Dialectics Break Bricks? (AKA La dialectique peut-elle casser des briques?) is the 1973 film from René Viénet which is a re-dubbing of the 1972 film Crush. The film re-tells re-tells the story of Crush as a tale of a bunch of rotten bureaucrats who have oppressed the working class long enough. The workers look forward to a day when the landlords will all hang, priests will be cut in two and the churches will be burned to the ground.
