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.

Alexander Payne's "Downsizing" is (at least) two movies in one.  The first of these films is definitely worth watching, but it can also lead to a profound sense of disappointment -- why is the rest of the movie something entirely different? 

And yet, despite that disappointment, there is still a very important lesson to learn...

Rachel Israel's new film, "Keep the Change," is a story of people with autism and features a number of cast members who have autism.

On this week's podcast, we delve into how her process for making the movie shifted from the way movies are traditionally made and whether she plans to continue pursuing films in this fashion. 

Additionally, we acknowledge the best of all "Thor" movies, "Thor: Ragnarok," which is currently out on Blu-ray.

When Richard Levine bought the rights to Francine Prose's "Blue Angel," there was no #MeToo movement.  There was no moment when he wrote the screenplay.  There was no movement when he filmed the movie. 

By the time the film's release rolled around, however, there was a movement.  So, this movie about a college professor, played by Stanley Tucci, making a bad decision with a student, played by Addison Timlin, has changed.  Or, at least, the way we see it has changed.

Levine talks to us about all that and more on this week's podcast, and just to give you whiplash, we throw in a bit of "Coco" as well.
