Thanks for stopping by to check out a new MadChat. This week we got into a conversation about shock value in media that went to really interesting places. Shock has been a tool used by entertainers and public figures for years to help push an idea or an emotion, or to simply make sure you are feeling something, even if it is negative. There are many cases where the perceived “shock” wasn’t planned. These are, in many cases, artistic decisions. We deeply explore that idea while discussing the movie Spring Breakers.
Thanks for listening.
