Episode 122: Childish Gambino’s “This Is America,” Big Screen vs. Living Room Films

Episode 122

This week, we’re dissecting the Childish Gambino music video “This is America” and have an interesting discussion about watching films in a movie theater vs at home- when and how do you decide to not have a cinematic experience? And Sean gives his review and rating to last week’s Big Sell and suggests a new Netflix anime series.

Episode notes

From the visceral imagery to our initial reactions- we discuss and try to decode the video that everyone is talking about- Childish Gambino’s “This Is America”. We give our thoughts and praise to Donald Glover’s latest music video/artistic statement.

Then, we discuss what films are big screen worthy and which films you can watch at home. Amita shares her thought process on how she determines which films pass the big screen test.

And finally, Sean gets brutally honest about last week’s Big Sell and suggests a new Netflix Japanese anime series, Agretsuko.
