Moviedrome Mondays: Spanking the Monkey (1994) (Mark Cousins intro)

I have posted a youtube video link below to Moviedrome presenter Mark Cousins introduction to director/writer David O. Russell’s 1994 indie breakthrough Spanking the Monkey. Readers can also read Cousins intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was August 10, 1997 (read here). A fresh viewing may be in order considering that it has been a long time since I saw this black comedy.
