Movies vs. Capitalism [DEAD FEED]

Rivka and Frank are joined by musician, writer, and This Is Revolution podcast host Jason Myles. Jason joins the MVC team for a discussion about the 1984 military drama, A Soldier’s Story, which depicts a racially motivated murder at a Louisiana Army base during World War II. 

The group unpacks how the film (based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play A Soldier’s Play) presents the complex perspectives of the Black community on morality, respectability, and violence.

A rough transcript of the episode is available here.
For next week’s movie, MVC will be revisiting the 2000 stoner comedy Dude, Where’s My Car?
