Omar — April 2017



Luke, Tito and Will discuss the 2013 Palestinian drama, “Omar,” which was nominated for Best Foreign Film at the 86th Academy Awards in 2014. They try to determine if the moving picture is a flick, movie or film and the effect the picture’s unique setting has on people’s opinion of it, and they question whether or not they’re knowledgeable enough about its topics to be able to judge it effectively.

Up next is Will’s recommendation, “Cloud Atlas,” which can be found on HBO.

The Babadook — December 2016

The Truman Show — November 2016



Luke, Tito and Will discuss the 1998 satirical science-fiction feature, “The Truman Show,” starring Jim Carrey and directed by Peter Weir. The three agree the moving picture has a negative view of humanity’s media consumption and perhaps on art and artists, but they cannot agree on the classification of the moving picture as a flick, movie or film.

For the month of December, Luke recommends “The Babadook” on Netflix.

Cinema Paradiso — October 2016



Luke, Tito and Will discuss Tito’s recommendation, “Cinema Paradiso.” The 1998 Italian drama was written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore. The Bildungsroman, or coming of age story, typically deals with someone’s formative years, but Tito argues people are always changing, adapting or growing up. Tito also references Thomas Wolfe’s “Look Homeward, Angel” and wonders whether or not you have to leave home in order to fully realize your potential.

For the month of November, Will nominates “The Truman Show,” which is on Netflix.

For the month of October, Tito recommends “Cinema Paradiso” on Netflix.
