The Poz Button 58 – Watership Down

The Right Stuff
July 4, 2018

Julius Evola and rabbits? It’s more likely than you think. In a Poz Button first, Borzoi talks about a movie he’s *really* passionate about: Watership Down. Join him and frequent panelist General Belisarius on an Anabasis romp about wartime rabbits where they talk about Mannerbunds, military discipline, the great men of history, and masculinity around this classic 1978 animated film about rabbits. Movie Commentary in the notes!
