Movies and Mind Control: ‘American Ultra’ w/Andy Colvin


Download MP3

20160504_AmericanUltra-audio‘American Ultra’ is a 2015 action comedy about the CIA’s MK Ultra mind control operations. It’s got Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart and was even written by Max Landis, son of famed director John Landis. So the questions I wanted to ask Andy Colvin were: why is this movie set in West Virginia and why are so many films glorifying the Criminals In Action? Join two West Virginians for an uncontrolled conversation about the mind control film called ‘American Ultra’.
