With Sofia Coppola’s new film The Beguiled opening to divisive reviews and sparking controversy about the stylistic director’s new and historical problems with representation, this week is the perfect week for your favorite two white-as-hell Daves, myself and AE-contributing writer and host of Pop Culture Case Study David Hart, to pair up and set the record straight. The latest episode Pop Culture Case Study gave me an opportunity to discuss Lost in Translation, Coppola’s beautiful, intimate, and, yes, problematic film through the scope of social intimacy.

You can listen to the full episode below, but make sure you subscribe to Pop Culture Case Study on your favorite podcast service and, if you like what you hear, consider supporting David’s Patreon.
