Changing Reels Episode 24 – C.R.A.Z.Y.

A young man tries to come to terms with his sexuality in a household where his father refuses to truly see him for who he is.  Sound like a standard coming-of-age tale? Think again. In the hands of director Jean-Marc Vallée, C.R.A.Z.Y. is a vibrant exploration of youth, sexuality, family and music.  Basking in the glow of this modern Canadian classic film, we explore the various facets of the film and even get a little personal when touching on the way religion is incorporated in the film.  As usual, we kick things off with our short film picks of the week: Sheldon Cohen’s The Sweater and Lev Yilmaz’s Non-Political Video.

Changing Reels Episode 23 – The Visitor

The complexities of American life are on our minds today as we dive into the somber side of patriotism.  Exploring the post-9/11 world of Tom McCarthy’s wonderful film The Visitor, we discuss everything ranging from the immigrant experience to the possibility of finding love in the most unexpected places.  We also reflect on the Bush and Obama years, and America’s love of guns, when chatting about our short film selections this week: Charles Stone III’s 8 Years Later…Waaazzzuuppp and Nicolas Lévesque’s In Guns We Trust.

Patreon Preview: 13 Reasons Why the Netflix series “Tape 1, Side A”

The second episode of Can't Stop the Podcast is up on Patreon!  Click on the image above or here to be taken straight to the episode.  I'll be reviewing the first part of the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, "Tape 1, Side A."  In this episode, I'll be talking about how the pedigree behind the show achieves a level of critique not possible in the book, the excellent performances bringing the material from the book to new heights, and why my favorite character's presentation is so important.

This is the last episode of Can't Stop the Podcast on 13 Reasons Why which will be available publicly.  I'll be releasing future episodes to the public when starting new topics but, for now, the only way to continue listening to episodes on 13 Reasons Why is to become a backer of the Can't Stop the Movies Patreon.

Changing Reels Episode 22 – Step Up 3D and Take the Lead

Time to put on your best footwear as we hit the floor, and the streets, with a dance filled doubled feature. Skipping the short film segment this week, don’t worry it will return in our next episode, we dive into the worlds of Step Up 3D and Take the Lead. While both films did not receive love from the critics, their choreography and diverse casting connected with audiences. We explore the pros and cons of each film and discuss why critics should not be so quick to dismiss modern dance films.
