TÁR and BROS on Episode #438

Cate Blanchett conducts an orchestra with a look of elation on her face in the move Tár.This week we start by reviewing Nicholas Stoller and Billy Eichner’s BROS (2:25), a funny, acerbic queer rom-com where two gay men from very different backgrounds (Eichner and Luke Macfarlane) unexpectedly find love in New York City. Next, we dig into Todd Field’s TÁR (24:17), a complex portrait of a problematic character—a world-renowned conductor at the height of her career, Lydia Tár (Cate Blanchett), who has done awful things to those around her. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about Steven Spielberg’s directorial debut, the 1971 thriller DUEL starring Dennis Weaver!
