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

Jan 2, 2020

Christopher and Nicole discuss 1917, the incredible craft of the movie, the balance it achieved in presenting the beautiful and the grotesque, the over-saturation of World War II as the "good war" versus other conflicts. We are happy to see such a beautifully crafted movie about World War I. Revisit George Carlin's routine on how we've dehumanized the words for battle trauma.

Christopher recommends Paths of Glory and When We Were Soldiers. Nicole recommends Regeneration by Pat Barker.
