Carol / Blue Is the Warmest Color

We have plenty to be thankful for this week. And because we love our listeners so much (and also because we’ve just seen so many movies lately), we have a new double feature to discuss!

This week’s episode kicks off with Carol, the new Todd Haynes film that follows two women falling in love during an era of repression. We discuss the film and Cate Blanchett’s and Rooney Mara’s performances in conjunction with Blue Is the Warmest Color, the modern classic that follows a young woman coming of age in France and discovering herself through love and loss.

Now, go eat some turkey and watch some movies!

Brooklyn / In Jackson Heights

Can’t get enough? Good, because we’re back with another new episode and a discussion of TWO new releases!

The first film, Brooklyn, centers in on a young Irish immigrant coming of age in New York. We discuss Nick Hornby’s beautiful screenplay and the changing definition of home. We paired Brooklyn with another new release focused on the immigrant experience and what it means to be an American, Frederick Wiseman’s In Jackson Heights. Believe it or not, this touching portrait of a Queens neighborhood marks Wiseman’s 40th documentary effort.

Spotlight / All the President’s Men

We’re back with our brand new format and a discussion of two great films that examine the art of investigative journalism.

This week’s new release, Spotlight, centers on the Boston Globe’s Spotlight team and its investigation of sexual abuse against children by Catholic clergy within the Boston archdiocese. We discuss writer/director Tom McCarthy’s newest in conjunction with the cinematic classic All the President’s Men, which follows famed Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein as they work to expose the Nixon administration’s involvement in the Watergate scandal.

Let’s talk about sex.

Or, at least, the new Gaspar Noé film Love, a 3D erotic melodrama with plenty to say on the subject of sex, love, and so much more.
