Aaron Sorkin is back with all his Sorkin-y traits: complete with impassioned monolouges and strange asides. It's not the first movie based on a true story he has done (we talked about "Molly's Game" a couple of episodes ago), but the question is, did he do justice to the true story of the Chicago 7? Let's just say some heroes will rise and some her…

Petey Green was a drunk, and ex-con, a radio and television show host, a social advocate, and a voice of the Washington DC black community.

Alan Turing should be hailed as an international hero. Instead, he was castrated by his government for being gay.

What would you do for the person you love? Would you give them something you don't want them to have? Would you rob a bank for them? Would you kill for them?​ ​ "Dog Day Afternoon" is about the bank robbery, but it is wrapped up in the Gay Liberation movement that was kicked off just a few years earlier with the Stonewall Riots. It folded in an inc…
 
One of my favorite films that few people have heard of is this achingly beautiful story about a man who studies wolves in the arctic. The themes are complex, the actors are brilliant, and the film is unique in its depiction of man and nature. ​ ​ While this movie is based on the book that is based on a true story by Farley Mowat, how true is that t…
 
The Beats. Iconoclastic representations of freedom. Romanticized. Criticized. Eulogized. But, what did it mean to be a Beat? ​ "Howl" does not tell you because it is a biography of a poem. A poem that exercised the freedom of spoken word and thought. A poem that reinforced that same freedom as the subject of an obscenity trial. A poem that has spok…

What do you know about "Norma Rae"?

What happens when a ​true story about corporate greed and mental illness become a comedic film? The answer is a lot of great things. But, what happens when you talk about what really happened? It turns out that it is not as funny anymore, and I think I ruined the film for John. Join us as we talk about the real story behind this movie based on a tr…
 
This is one of those movies which you are always told is great, but you never get around to seeing it. To tell you the truth, if it had not been for Lolita, I don't think I ever would have seen this film. And, I would have missed out on what is probably the biopic that sets the bar for all other biopics. Is it true to reality? Hint: We have never g…

Listen as Rob and John talk about White Savior Trope and white privledge in an episode that is topical and timely. Boy, do we have a lot of work to do.…
 
What happens when a writer becomes a public figure? How much of yourself should you have to give to the rest of the world, just because you wrote a book? Can you trust that a reporter will present the person you are? ​ These are the questions that David Foster Wallace wrestled with when his book, "Infinite Jest" became a bestseller. Rob, John and D…
 
P.L. Travers was a fascinating and flawed woman who stood on her own. Walt Disney was a man who knew what he wanted, and he knew how to get it. Is "Saving Mr. Banks" the story of a woman who has a cathartic experience and comes to terms with issues with her father, or is it about a woman who is trying to protect her intellectual property? Mariam wi…
