  1. Great to see Marx-ist Propaganda back. Hopefully you won’t run into any more issues with the bots.

    I used to be a big fan of Duck Soup, though looking back on the movie I don’t really think it holds up that well. It feels a bit too unfocused in its chaos, if that makes sense. Still has a lot of great comedic moments (and as you said, some of Groucho’s best lines), but the story falls flat in several areas. I agree with Thalberg that it lacked any serious connecting narrative and suffered for it.

    Also, I was not expecting a shout out to the duck song… ohhhhhh, because it’s Duck Soup. Clever. That’s layered.
