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

Aug 3, 2023

Justin and Nicole discuss Oppenheimer and the issues around nuclear proliferation. We disagree on how much we liked the movie. We enjoyed the parts about the bomb and the sound design but disagreed on the later segments featuring Robert Downey Jr. We talk about the benefits and risks of nuclear proliferation, and Japan's special status as the only country to experience a nuclear bomb.

Justin recommends Hardcore History: Supernova in the East and Peaky Blinders. Nicole recommends Copenhagen
