This episode’s movies are all about nostalgia, which often is a powerful force for storytelling, as Alan Mattli and I discuss.
THE FRENCH DISPATCH, Wes Anderson’s newest movie, shows us an ironic take on American intellectual’s visions of France during the first half of the 20th century.
The gem, the German movie GOOD BYE LENIN! delves into the thorny issue of nostalgia, when said nostalgia happens to be about living in a socialist dictatorship.
We also briefly discuss Ridley Scott’s THE LAST DUEL and are confused by the title situation of the movie formerly known as EDGE OF TOMORROW.
