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.

At one point or another, we have probably all taken an anti-adaptation/reboot/reimagining stance, we have all decided that "x" shouldn't be turned from a movie to a book or book to a movie or movie to a TV show.  

It's an easy argument to make.  It's also a bad one.  The question has to be whether there is something worthwhile to be gleaned from the new version.

Listen as Josh rants about this and reminds you to enter our "Fences" and "Silence" blu-ray giveaways!

"20th Century Women" and "Julieta" provide insightful--at times harrowing--looks at what it means to be a parent, and not just a parent, a single parent who does not have any help from the child's other parent.

Today's episode thinks about what that means, what difficulties might be associated, and whether we (as a people) can and should do better for parents.  Hint:  we should.

Some movies are easy to describe and others are quite difficult.  It isn't that the latter are necessarily better than the former, it's just that they require a paragraph or two or three before you can give an explanation that doesn't feel overly chintzy.  

This week's podcast looks at one easy to describe film, "Sing," and one difficult one, "Elle."  Over the course of the episode Josh tries, not in terribly deft fashion, to come up with a single sentence to describe each. Can he do it?

Yes, Lass is More is launching its first ever giveaway contest.  We have two copies of Denzel Washington's "Fences" to give out and are looking for two different winners (one winner per copy). Enter here.

We are particularly happy to have this be our first giveaway as it's such a good, powerful, movie.  So, listen to the podcast, learn why we like it and make sure to enter the contest.

Sometimes there is just too much going on.  Such is the case with this week's "Lass is More."  While the majority of the episode is devoted to an interview with director Ferne Pearlstein, whose movie "The Last Laugh" is currently showing in NY and will soon expand across the country, we would be remiss if we didn't mention the wonderful "Moana," which is now out on Blu-ray.  

In fact though, when you stop and think about it, these two movies might have more in common than it initially appears.
