Welcome, one and all, to the latest episode of The Film Stage Show! Today, Brian Roan, Michael Snydel, and Bill Graham are joined by special guest Odie Henderson to discuss Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods, which is now on Netflix. It’s an epic, nearly three-hour discussion exploring the consciously dissonant choices of Spike Lee’s movies, representations of masculine pain in film, genre tropes as a cinematic narrative shorthand, the greatness of Delroy Lindo, the process of thoughtful criticism, and more.
We also want to direct our listeners to this resource, where you can learn about ways to help out in your community in the fight against injustice and inequality.
