CW: Brief Discussion of a suicide around 21:15
This month we’re talking about some of our favorite movies that the other host hasn’t seen. For this episode, Jacob introduces Emma to 1987’s Wings of Desire, a movie about angels in Berlin falling in love. We explore the movie’s profound rejoicing in the physical experience of life, its marvelous portrait of urban life, as well as its complex gender politics and moments of warm humor. Next week, we’ll talk 2013’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
