On this episode of Lights to Low, we tackle the very Britishness of Empire of the Sun, a movie that takes place in war-torn China. Join us as we talk about P-51s, POW camps, and whether or not Christian Bale peaked at 13.
On this episode of Lights to Low, listen to two white guys talk about another white guy who directed a movie about the female-centered, southern Black experience in the first few decades of the twentieth century. We talk race, misogyny, faith, and Spielberg’s transition from sharks and aliens to historical dramas.
On this episode of Lights to Low, we travel to India for “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.” Racism, colonialism, and xenophobia? Check. A chiseled Harrison Ford, great set pieces, and a delicious green apple? Double check. Join us as we try to reconcile a good film with bad cultural representation.
This week on Lights to Low, we befriend “E.T the Extra-Terrestrial.” We talk divorce, religion, and the appeal of Reese’s Pieces found on the ground in the middle of the woods. We also invite you to cherish what will surely be one of the final Spielberg Mom discussions.
On this episode, we talk Steven Spielberg's “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” including all varietals of Nazis, whether or not Indiana Jones believes in anything, and the suggestive powers, hidden meanings, and all around symbolism of an apple left on a desk.
