At the urging of listeners, we’ve decided to release this episode out from behind the Patreon paywall. Seriously though, for the rest of 2021 Perfect Movie will only be available if you subscribe to the Bonus Disc through patreon.com/twogomers! Enjoy!
It’s the premiere episode of Perfect Movie Series 2, and we’re hitting the ground running: with Ava DuVernay’s 2015 MLK biopic Selma. We talk about what separates a good biopic from a great one, how visceral visual storytelling can change your perception of an event, how to respond after you’ve seen a movie that truly moves you…and which aliens we plan to convert this year.
Joining us for a portion of this episode is Donell Woodson, an urban community developer in the historic Sweet Auburn district, the birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and home to the national historic park honoring his legacy.
So what do you think, dear listener? Is Selma a Perfect Movie? Vote in our polls on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram (all @twogomers) and we’ll reveal the results (and more of our interview) on the Result Show in a couple weeks!
