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.

Growing up, it felt like Danny Kaye movies were constantly being aired.  Josh avoided them and it was an error he corrects this week as he watches "The Court Jester."  On the other hand, he watched plenty of Mel Gibson and makes the mistake of seeing the actor's latest, "Fatman."

There is, one suspects, something clever buried somewhere within  the filmic adaptation of "The Empty Man" graphic novel.  The movie has a great look and James Badge Dale is a good actor and there's a lot to chew on in it.  But, maybe because of its length or its desire to twist things around or its not wanting to explain anything in any way that makes any sense, it all ends up feeling... well... empty.

Our intent for this episode was to talk about "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" and "The Midnight Sky."  Instead, Donald Trump, backed by the Republican Party, decided to continue to fan the flames of idiocy and hatred and the Capitol Building was taken over by terrorists.  So, we're talking about that instead.

For what it's worth, both movies are really good.

"Grizzly II" was initially shot in the early 1980s.  Or, some of it was shot until the money ran out (a producer left the project).  In 2018, one of the producers, Suzanne Csikos Nagy, returned to the movie and finished it.  That film is out on VOD this week.  We admire the effort that must have taken and wonder what it means about returning/reediting projects in general.
