Movies that Matter is the podcast going beyond basic film criticism to boldly explore a social issue affecting people's lives.

Aug 24, 2017

Stacy, Nicole, and Garrett discuss Detroit, violence and tension in movies, riots and the roots of violence, and the appropriateness of white directors telling people of color's stories. We mention the controversy surrounding Adam Sandler's Ridiculous Six, where to see the beautiful Migration Series paintings used in the opening titles, fact vs. fiction in Detroit, and an article explaining why people riot.

Garrett recommends Hounds of Love, Stacy recommends not shooting people in the back, and Nicole recommends Uncle Tom's Cabin. Check out movie reviews by Garrett at
