    Episode 59 - Coda (2021), Coda (2019), and Coda (2016)

    Episode 59 - Coda (2021), Coda (2019), and Coda (2016)

    What better way to celebrate the Oscars, now a month past due, than by watching a movie that shares a title with the best picture winner? Jenner and Hsien take a look at CODA (2021), an acronym standing for Child of Deaf Adults, and also the concluding passage of a piece of music. It's about a young woman pursuing a music career while trying to help her parents with communication. Nate, on the other hand, watched the epic Coda (2019), a Patrick Stewart vehicle with Katie Holmes as his... er, love interest. Yeah. He's a pianist with stage fright, she's a journalist who worships him. It's amazing.

Then, we discuss The Power of the Dog (2021), Jane Campion's film about toxic masculinity (amongst other things) starring Benedict Cumberbatch, currently on Netflix.

    Episode 57 - Drive My Car (2021)

    We're back from vacation with another Oscar contender (it didn't win) about a month after the Oscars finished: Drive My Car, the 2021 film based on Haruki Murakami's short story works, about a husband whose philandering wife dies suddenly. It's a deeply depressing and melancholy film.
