Competing Spectacles by Tony Reinke, Free for CAPC Members
Reinke wants to help readers not be manipulated and enthralled by the spectacles of our media age. Instead, he shows that we see the greatest spectacle of all in the Cross.
Matt Zoller Seitz, editor-in-chief of RogerEbert.com, joins the guys this week as a special guest. They talk about his latest book, “The Oliver Stone Experience,” and discuss the importance of fostering a diverse array of voices and perspectives in conversations about film. Wade and Kevin then turn their attention to the BEN-HUR remake. Is it a worthy successor to previous versions of the story, or does it crash before crossing the finish line?
