TFR 92: That’s Problematic

Welcome!

This week we decided to follow up on Al’s article on how to deal with problematic art with a full-on episode. It’s a big topic and we absolutely can’t cover everything, but we can certainly take a bite out of the issue. Feel free to chime in with your thoughts via Twitter or Facebook.

Now please enjoy this completely unrelated picture of Woody Allen at the beginning of Annie Hall.

TFR 91: In the Moonlight

Hello and welcome!

This week we’re highlighting film that we feel we need to help remove an asterisk on. See, every time a film wins best picture at that year’s Oscars carries a stigma because it is then drenched in the popularity contest that is the Academy Awards. Well, every so often, a film ACTUALLY DESERVES it because it is indeed the best film of the year. That’s right, we’re discussing Moonlight. The film is a tone poem of pure cinema and emotions that washes over the viewer, and we’re going to do our best to try to get at what makes this movie great.

WARNING: Full spoilers are ON, though we’re not sure if it makes much difference, as you really need to see the film to experience it, and no amount of talking will spoil that.

TFR 90: Easter Sunday (Ragsdale Finale)

Hello and welcome!

This week we pay tribute to our friend, filmmaker Harold Ragsdale, who went out in a literal blaze of glory when his hotel room caught fire on New Year’s Eve this last year. He had just that day supervised the final cut of what would turn out to be his final film, the religious ensemble Easter Sunday. Since it is a religious film, we of course brought in Thomas to help us out in picking this one apart. (We SWEAR we’ll have you on for a good film soon, Thomas).

Harold, this one’s for you! RIP, sir.

Bonus: a look at another, equally awful Christian epic from Sebastian Villegas.
