On this episode of Cinedicate, we defend Japan against a Kaiju attack. Diego, Chicago graphic designer, returns to talk about the dark reimagining of a classic monster in Shin Godzilla.

From director Hideaki Anno (Neon Genesis Evangelion), reboots the original Godzilla film for a modern audience.

What makes Godzilla a spectacular and timely story is the apparent subtext of the kaiju as an allegory for the destruction caused by nuclear weapons.
