Is it an Elvis movie or a Jesus movie (or a dessert topping or a floor wax)? On this episode of Dare Daniel, film critic Daniel Barnes and comedian Corky McDonnell try to make pompadoured heads or boogie-woogied tails of Dustin Marcellino’s The Identical, an incomprehensible mashup of Elvis and Jesus iconography. Listen as Daniel and Corky discuss the ethics of baby giveaways, talent show judge etiquette and the unexpectedly swanky life of celebrity impersonators.
