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

Jan 16, 2020

Stacy and Nicole discuss Like a Boss, how it's possible to make that unfunny a comedy with that cast, how the movie is both formulaic and misunderstands both women and the beauty industry, and how the movie should have tackled real issues in selling beauty to women. We find the movie tone-deaf in understanding the actual beauty industry and mining the depths of women's relationship to make up. Catch up on beauty podcast faves Fat Mascara and The Beauty Brains.

Stacy recommends The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish and A Black Lady Sketch Show. Nicole recommends the panel discussion on deaths of despair by leading economists.
