What's worse than a tone-deaf movie about police that bungles its handling of issues of race and systemic violence? Two white guys talking about one!
This week, Jacob and Nathan tackle 211 (2018), in which Nicolas Cage plays a cop saddled with a juvenile ride-along passenger, who end up in the middle of a bank robbery. Many questions will be asked in this episode including: What the heck is going on in this movie? How does a director's lack of viewpoint inform a film's meaning? What do two privileged white boys know about anything? And why has Nathan started watching anime??
These questions and more answered in this episode, which was recorded one year, and proves yet again that racial prejudice and police brutality have yet to be fixed.
