Episode 215 - The Wizard of Oz

This week, we watch the one of the first color movies ever made, which tells the now culturally-embedded story of Dorothy, her dog Toto, The Scarecrow, The Tin Man, The Cowardly Lion, The Wicked Witch of the West, and the title character, while using the new technology to a very purposeful effect. The Wizard of Oz (1939), directed by Victor Fleming.

Episode 216 - Monsters, Inc.

This week, we watch the Pixar movie that leads us on a journey through the world behind the closet doors of children.  We dive deep into the potential history of the monster culture, and whether Waternoose created the notion that children are dangerous to keep the scary monsters in power. Monsters, Inc. (2001), directed by Pete Doctor.

Episode 228 - La Haine

This week, we watch the film that kickstarted a renaissance in French cinema, which tells a story of a day in the life of three friends living in the projects one day after a night of violent riots of protest in the streets of Paris- La Haine (Hate, 1995). Directed by Mathieu Kassovitz.
