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.

Are we all on a journey in our lives?  More specifically, are we all on an internal (or maybe spiritual) journey?  Two movies arriving on home video this week offer up different sorts of internal journeys and do so with different results.  This week, we're talking the Oscar-winning "Moonlight" and "Doctor Strange."

A significant number of movies use flashbacks, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they should.  All too often, flashbacks are used as a crutch; a way to make a boring, or ill-considered, movie that much more interesting.  

Today's podcast looks at two different films that utilize flashbacks, one where they prop up a problem film and one where they enhance an already great one.

On today's podcast, Josh learns that a quote is from the Bible.  He would have guessed Shakespeare, but that would have been wrong.

The point though is not the quote being biblical, but rather the idea that maybe movies should just strive to be the best version of themselves rather than pretending that they're utterly unique.  "The Edge of Seventeen" seems to subscribe to this notion and manages to be stellar coming of age tale.
