The Last Thing I Saw

Welcome to The Last Thing I Saw, a podcast where we reach out to friends to talk about what we’ve been watching. It’s as simple as that. Joining Nicolas Rapold this time are critics Amy Taubin and Michael Koresky. This time of year, our heads are usually full of brand-new movies from film festivals, which are a good way to preview fall releases as well as titles that might otherwise be hard to see. We talked about a number of films including: American Utopia, Spike Lee’s movie of David Byrne’s Broadway show; Sam Pollard’s documentary MLK/FBI, about the FBI’s relentless surveillance of Martin Luther King; Regina King’s One Night in Miami, which dramatizes the meeting of four great historical figures in 1965; and a French comedy that plays out in a prison, The Big Hit, directed by Emmanuel Courcol. Finally, because we just couldn’t help ourselves, we talked about Lovers Rock, actually the opening night selection of The New York Film Festival.
