Lass is More with Josh Lasser

Focusing on the media, "Lass is More" sits down with the individuals who make the movies and shows that people are, or will be, talking about. The things we watch are not created in a vacuum, but rather as responses to far larger thoughts and issues. From why someone took a role to what it means to them to where they’re going next, we put the pieces of the puzzle together. The "Lass is More" podcast gets to the core of the issue, offering perspective on both the people involved in a project, and the project itself.

This week, Josh discusses "Citizenfour" and the reasons it just doesn't work for him.  No, he understands why it's probably important now and maybe insanely important in another 50 or 100 years, but being important and being good filmmaking aren't really the same thing.

Disney has released a great new set of animated shorts.  It offers up a dozen pieces, 11 of which I truly enjoy and watching the whole thing on a Saturday morning on the sofa with my kids is about as good as nostalgia can get.

Having a bunch of interesting things to say does not necessarily mean that you're going to make an interesting movie.  The way you opt to say them--or not say them--is hugely important.  The Tom Hardy movie "Child 44" fails because it can't be bothered with choosing what to prune back and what to keep.  It is, in the simplest terms, a story told just as my son would tell it.

Austin Stark is the writer-director of "The Runner," Nicolas Cage's latest film.  In the movie, the actor plays a politician who truly believes in doing the right thing for his community and not getting corrupted by the system, but who can't get out of his own way.  

Lass is More talks to Stark about how his own world views influence the film, why he chose a real-world disaster as the backdrop for the movie, and a whole lot more.
