One of our listeners suggested that we consider discussing Barry Jenkins' directorial debut Medicine for Melancholy.  We loved the idea so much that we decided to throw away our usual format and do a “Listener’s Choice” episode.  While we don’t talk about any short films this week (don’t fret, they will be back in the next episode), we do take some time to show Jenkins' Moonlight and Jeremy Saulnier’s Green Room love before diving into the romantic and social themes of Medicine for Melancholy.

You can subscribe to our show on  iTunes, SoundCloud or Stitcher!

Show notes:

  • 3:27 – Moonlight by Barry Jenkins
  • 10:47 – Green Room by Jeremy Saulnier
  • 18:33 – Medicine for Melancholy by Barry Jenkins
