The Cine-Analyst: Episode 7 – The Punisher

On this week’s brand new episode of The Cine-Analyst, we look at Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, a man plagued with guilt on a mission to do the hard work of cleaning up the streets. But is he doing more harm than good, or he is the solution Hell’s Kitchen really needs? Listen to this episode to find out:


Here’s what we talk about this episode: 

  • The Gangs of New York ain’t got nothing on Frank Castle.
  • Who is really helping Hell’s Kitchen?
  • Narratives of PTSD and how messed up our thinking is.
  • Facing consequences and upholding ideologies.
  • Is the war ever really over?

Tune in every Friday as I breakdown fictional characters and talk about what’s going on inside that brain of theirs. Are your favorite heroes crazy or just misunderstood? Find out on this season of The Cine-Analyst!
