Episode 4: The Voice of an Artist

1532642282_focus-features_blackkklansman_unit_john-david-washington_call

A spine to my films that’s become more evident to me is that many are about the choices people make, and the reverberations of those choices. You go this way, or that way, and either way, there’s going to be consequences. -Spike Lee

This week on the Podcast we discuss: She’s Gotta Have It(1:07-14:07), Malcolm X(14:23-38:43), 25th Hour(38:44-1:08:09), BlacKkKlansman(1:04:20-1:44:31), and Sharp Objects Episodes 3 & 4(1:44:32-2:17:39). We do have a brief digression during our discussion of BlacKkKlansman about the film Blindspotting(1:13:30-1:23:00). Reference the timestamps preceding this sentence if you wish to avoid this discussion and still listen to the BlacKkKlansman review.

The classic theme this week was a selection of Spike Lee Films in honor of the voice and originality he has brought to everyone for 30 years. His new film in wide release is BlacKkKlansman. As always the podcast is filled with SPOILERS, so if you don’t want to ruin a specific movie refer to the time stamps included for that very reason.

“You’re going to do it because you’re an actor and that’s what you do. Just like the director does what he does and the writer and the script girl and the guy who claps the slate. You’re gonna do it because the picture has worth! And you have worth if you serve the picture and you’re never gonna forget that again. -Eddie Mannix (Hail, Caesar!)

The classic theme this week was Historical Films. This didn’t tie into anything specific coming out, but was a fun chance to revisit and illuminate some blindspots before the fall and winter award season rush. As always the podcast is filled with SPOILERS, so if you don’t want to ruin a specific movie refer to the time stamps included for that very reason. Enjoy the episode and look for which film we hand out the award for best use of Wolf Blitzer in a film to!

Hail, Caesar! Corrections: We say that Alden Ehrenreich’s character Hobie Doyle has a love interest named Carla, we were wrong! Her name is Carlotta Valdez in the movie and her real name is Veronica Osorio. She also has a limited appearance in Steven Soderbergh’s Mosaic and is a main character in the short film Manic Pixie Prostitute. We also each mispronounced Ralph Fiennes name differently. The correct pronunciation can be heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rc3OYAxykJg
