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.

There are movies that purport to impart a message, that supposedly want to offer up some sort of meaning as they close, something for the audience to walk away having learned.  But, what of the movies like "Nerve," where the filmmakers only claim to have a message, but actually don't?

"Mr. Deeds Goes to Town" is a classic, an utter classic, and the newly restored Blu-ray is a solid (but not perfect) effort.  Why though does Frank Capra hate New York?  Why does he hate all cities?  Why are the only nice places small towns whose name ends in "Falls?"
