Chinatown (1974)

It’s a dark look at a 1930s conspiracy concerning water rights in the desert city of Los Angeles. Sounds dry, right? Wrong! Watch Jack Nicholson in his prime play Detective Jake Gittes follow a trail of clues that leads him to the deep pockets of the rich. Faye Dunaway stars opposite as a dynamic and tragic figure. It’s not a cheerful end, but it’s one that will keep you thinking.

Lincoln (2012)

Join us as we add another Daniel Day Lewis movie to our podcast, Lincoln directed by Steven Spielberg. Lewis’s Oscar-winning performance was surrounded by a killer cast and historical accuracy. Yes, you read that right. Unlike the beloved Gladiator, Lincoln’s true to life portrayal takes a look at the titular character without the false bravado and vampires of other movies. Listen in as we dissect this masterclass in playing hate-able and lovable characters, creating authenticity in tone, and what it means to closely adhere to realism.

The Age of Innocence (1993)

Let’s take a dive into Scorsese’s catalog to a movie with those signature crane shots and quick cuts, but with an extremely low body count. The exploration of love and longing within a rigid world is portrayed by epic performances from Daniel Day Lewis, Michelle Pfieffer, and Winona Ryder and camerawork that speaks as much as the characters. In this odd child of Scorsese’s body of work, you’re sure to find swoon-worthy dialogue, Oscar winning costumes, and a love story with more than what meets the eye.
Thank you to The Epic Mouthful for commissioning this podcast!
