Why “Broadcast News” Is My Favorite Movie - The Feedback Society

Today, director David Bruckner talks with Jordan about feeling seen by Holly Hunter’s character, Jane Craig, in the 1987 classic, BROADCAST NEWS. Directed by James L. Brooks, it’s a journalism….satire? rom-com? dramedy?… starring Hunter, Albert Brooks, and William Hurt. It’s one of those movies that is so prescient about what news media would become. And for David Bruckner — whose latest film is this year’s HELLRAISER — saw in it some parallels with what it feels like to be a creator in any medium.

Then, Jordan has one quick thing about the new trailer for 65.

About the show

On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them “feel seen.” It’s about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, “That’s me!” It’s an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relationship with movies, the impact they have on our lives, and how they influence our art.
