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

May 24, 2018

Stacy and Nicole discuss Le Redoutable (playing as Godard Mon Amor in the United States), the failure of the movie to capture a woman's perspective, and the argument that female oppression is a valid price for artistic genius. Stacy is not the only one to note that the central figure is more reminiscent of Woody Allen than Jean-Luc Godard who has just about as much self-awareness as the director. Also read this recent article in The Atlantic for other abuses forgiven in the name of genius.

Stacy recommends Tao Te Ching and Nicole recommends buying a copy of Street Sense if you pass a homeless person selling one.
