Should you be allowed custody of nuclear powered weapons? It’s questions that’s plagued libertarians before, and one that’s also raised by the animated cult classic The Iron Giant. Through innovative production means, Brad Bird’s box office blunder turned cinematic darling wraps a clear creative vision and Aristotelian characterization of themes up in a seemingly simple story of a boy and a giant robot. Sean Malone and Paul Meany joins us to answer questions it raises like; is Brad Bird an objectivist filmmaker? How much can we change the path we’re set upon in life? And is The Lorax a good lesson for kids?
