Greetings, all. This week, we have a few looks at film and storytelling, generally, as well as a couple in-depth discussions and analysis of specific works.

  • First, John Yorke of The Atlantic examines that we’ve been telling the same story since we first begun to tell stories and only the superficial elements have changed.
  • Documentarian and political provocateur Michael Moore makes an appearance on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast to promote his new film, Where to Invade Next. In a conversation that touches upon topics as diverse and differentiated from one another as the socio-cultural dilemmas surrounding the current Republican presidential race and Moore’s personally held anger stemming from a proclaimed selfless desire for social justice, the director has never been more candid than he is in conversation with the program’s eponymous stand-up comedian, and provides reason for even the most conservative listener to give his substantial filmography a chance.

That’s it for this week, folks. Check back next Monday for more of the best movie stuff from the rest of the Internet!
