On the Spoiler Special podcast, Slate critics discuss movies, the occasional TV show, and, once in a blue moon, another podcast, in full, spoiler-filled detail. Below, Slate movie critic Dana Stevens and Slate senior editor Forrest Wickman discuss White God, the new movie about a Rise of the Planet of the Apes-style uprising with dogs. What do we make of the movie’s animal rights message? How successful is the canine acting and the movie’s creation of a canine hero? And what, exactly, is the meaning of the ending?
Listen to them discuss these and other questions below. You can also check out past Spoiler Specials in our archive, and you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. Note: As the title indicates, each installment contains spoilers galore.
