Episode notes

Jerzy Skolimowski’s EO is probably not the first film to premiere at Cannes, land on a ton of annual Top Ten lists, and then get nominated for Best International Feature at the Academy Awards. But it’s the first movie to do all that AND be about – and starring – a donkey. Comedian Ashley Ray joins us to talk about our silent protagonist’s adventure across Europe. Then, a certain bear joins the Hall of Excellence and we pick some other non-human POVs that would make good cinema.

What’s Good:
Drea – Hearing the Spirit Awards were accessible
Ashley – Extreme Sisters
Alonso – Kristen Lopez, But Have You Read the Book?


Staff Picks
Drea – Bruiser
Ashley – Three Ways
Alonso- Framing Agnes
