The Bad and The Beautiful: Conversations on Cinema


Aug 5, 2019

On this episode of "The Bad and the Beautiful," Charles and Jeff look at two different approaches to testosterone-driven cinema, from a tentpole blockbuster to an art house auteur.

First, Jeff takes a fast look at a furious spinoff, HOBBS & SHAW.

Then. both Charles and Jeff take a deep dive into Quentin Tarantino's 9th feature film, first by reviewing ONCE UPON A TIME...IN HOLLYWOOD in depth, then following that with a discussion about gender and ethnic politics in the Tarantino universe.

(WARNING: while no specific plot details are revealed, aspects of the ONCE discussion should be considered SPOILERS for the end of the movie.)
