This week on ABOC we look at the cultish charisma of a filmmaker, the changing landscape for political propaganda, and the latest fictional representation of Winston Churchill. Na'a delves into the reasons behind the enduring appeal of film director Ed Wood, who's widely considered the worst director ever. With the general election around the corner, Uma poses the question of whether propaganda can still aim to be as persuasive in a digitally saturated age. The last topic led by Kam divides opinions between the guests, as he disapproves of the creative licence the film 'Darkest Hour' takes with Churchill's character and WWII depiction.
